Museo del Tessudo 

on March 7, 2017

I love the fact that my 3yo has a rudimentary understanding of knitting and sewing, so that when I took him to the Museo del Tessudo here in Prato, Italy he was impressed by the beauty of the  displays.  I was able to explain this fluffy stuff comes from a sheep, this machine makes yarn, someone embroidered this shirt, these are the plants used for color. There is also no doubt that he is my child, because when given the opportunity to touch the different types of fiber he chose cashmere as his favorite.  I’m so proud. 
The museum was small but impressive to anyone that values fiber arts.  Prato has a rich history of textile from its very beginning in 1050!  Just look at some of the highlights of the museum:


Ciao!
