Please see my other items. For weekly updates, please add me to your favorites list. I take a great deal of care and pride in describing each textile very accurately. I also use many photographs to show the textiles also as I feel it is very important to see the exact condition, colors, texture, size etc of each textile. If ever you feel that I have missed anything, please contact me immediately as it would have been an oversight, never an intentional omission!
All of my textiles are wrapped in acid free tissue and sent in water tight wrapping, at no extra charge to my customers. I politely request that all items be paid for within 7 days.The individual condition will be described to the best of my ability however, often flaws are inherent in vintage and antique textiles. When describing my textiles, I use my best judgment, knowledge and experience to estimate their age. It is an art, rather than a science I have had many years of research and hands on experience with these wonderful textiles. I describe items as Antique if I estimate the age to be 100 years of age or greater. I describe items as Vintage, as per the dictionary definition, if I feel the textile has age, or is outdated or old-fashioned, dating from the past. If I use both Antique/Vintage when describing a textile, it is because I feel the textile is most likely 100 years of age or greater, but may fall just short of that date. I often work in collaboration with other colleagues and textile specialists to ascertain the approximate age of my textiles, however ultimately any statement of age is a matter of best judgment onlyI also use my best professional judgment to ascertain the fiber content of my textiles, using sight and feel and where possible historical information and context to help me to identify plants used in a particular era. However, because my textiles are old, any statement of fiber content is again always only my best professional assessment.
