Last week, in a charity shop, I noticed some vintage linens, tray clothes, napkins, table clothes. All were pre printed in blue, with floral designs ready to embroider. The colour of the blue used for the printing reminded me of the blue dye used to print the fabric Toile de Jouy*. Holding this thought I decided to embroider on a piece of Toile de Jouy, just enhancing part of the print by picking out flowers, hats etc with beads and embroidery. One thing leads to another and after looking at the eighteenth century print, a bucolic view, I decided I would bring it up to date with embroidery. I added a few items from the twenty-first century. Now I think it's more interesting, Banksy-esque.
*Toile (pronounced twahl) means "cloth" in French. “Toile de Jouy,” or “toiles de Jouy,” are terms that refer to fabric that was first manufactured at a factory in Jouy-en-Josas, a village located southwest of Paris, near Versailles. Founded in 1760 by German-born Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf, (1738-1815), a textile entrepreneur, the factory site was chosen primarily because of its proximity to the clear running water of the Bièvre River.
