Today the new issue of Selvedge was dropped in my mailbox. Always a pleasure to read and look at. There's a pile in my studio and most of the times one lays open on a beautiful spread. It's just the most inspiring textile magazine. About crafts, historical background, places and people, art and culture. In this issue one of the topics is modesty. Not for religious reasons (Amish for instance), or cultural reasons (Simone de Beauvoir) but modesty as a choice for a new aesthetic. Shapes, fabric, colour, comfort. Many examples are described and showed. Beautifully made, gorgeous fabrics and elegant as well. It suits the sign of the times; it will probably endure, the new demure!
