Tecidos de Museu :: Museum Fabrics

Ontem, enquanto arrumava as gavetas da minha secretária, encontrei alguns postais que comprei durante a minha visita a Londres precisamente há um ano. Das lojas dos museus costumo trazer postais de retratos de família (especialmente se há crianças e brinquedos envolvidos), de interiores, de vestuário e de tecidos, claro. Pensei então partilhar convosco alguns postais de tecidos comprados no V&A e no Geffrye Museum.

Yesterday, whilst tyding up my desk drawers, I found some postcards I bought during my trip to London last year. The type of postcards I tend to bring from museum shops are family portraits (especially if there are children and toys involved), interiors, clothes and of course fabrics. I thought it would be nice to share with you some postcards of fabrics I bought at the V&A and at the Geffrye Museum.
