Friday Fashion Flashback ~ Baby's Christmas

Friday, December 16, 2011 | | 2 comments

Look at how I'm smiling up at my Daddy. I look pretty fond of him. He looks pretty fond of me, too. I think it was love at first sight for both of us. This is my first Christmas. Just a wee little thing! I'm wearing a white onesie, knee-high white socks, and cute little w hite shoes. Those socks are something else, huh? I've never seen infants wear socks like that. There must be a story.

But better than my outfit, is my Dad's. He's wearing a traditional white button-down shirt, black slacks, and a skinny blue tie. I distinctly remember shopping with my Dad less than a month ago and he was commenting on how skinny the ties were these days. Uh, hello Dad, they aren't THAT skinny! My Dad has always been a fashionable dresser. I think I get my love for fashion, in part, from him. I definitely get my shopping style from him: buy quality, buy less often. We tend to buy quality clothing and rarely get rid of things. I purchased a camel hair coat when I was a Freshman in highschool. I still wear it. It is classic.


Textillery Tour

The process of creating one of these beautiful textiles begins with design

IMG_3729
Judith's design room, where a lot of the magic happens

IMG_3704
Once the design is made, yarn is chosen

IMG_3699
This room is filled with yarn shipments for various orders to be filled. Many orders come from hotels and retailers.

IMG_3703
Once the yarn is chosen, it is prepared for weaving

IMG_3714
The yarn may be woven by automated looms

IMG_3710
This loom is weaving the yarn on its own, occasionally someone checks to make sure it is doing okay.

IMG_3718
Or the yarn may be woven by hand, as this woman is doing

IMG_3698
Once woven, they are packaged for shipping

IMG_3693
Or they are sold at the warehouse

IMG_3696
I wonder who is going to get a lovely textile for Christmas? Could it be you?! :)
