The art of woven silk pictures has been around for a very long time.
In large textile cities such as Greiz, Kirchberg, Krefeld, Hohenstein Ernstthal etc. these were lovingly made. There are a lot of motifs, postcards, portraits, romanticism, baroque, politics, satire, family etc. You can find fewer and fewer of them, but it is a very collectable art with a very special charm that lasts for several centuries.
