That's one party I'd have loved to attend.......

So I was googling up some pretty pictures to share with you when I came across this absolutely stunning show-stopper! This, ladies and gentlemen, is a fully hand embroidered tent---it seems that it weighed all of 71 kilos (I believe it!!!!)--hats off to the artisans who created it!




A closer look at the details...


 
The party setting...isn't it exotic? 
 
The lady who pulled it all off, Sally Campbell, is based in Sydney, Australia, and to be honest, she deserves a post dedicated to her carefully curated collections. As you can probably tell, she sources her textiles from southeast Asia, working closely with artisans from India and Pakistan. A percentage of the proceeds goes back to the artisans and their communities. These pictures were taken from her blog, which is chock-full of pictures of delicious textiles from around the world. Do also visit her website for more eye candy and information on how to purchase some for your home!!!
