We had a lovely morning in the design museum in Milan - La Triennale di Milano.
We particularly liked the walkway through into the children exhibition.
We saw the temporary design exhibition which happened to have a lot of textiles. This was the work of China's Miao ethnic group. Almost all Miao women have an indigo-dyed pleated skirt, each woman would have her own set of tools passed down from mother to daughter.
The tiny pleats in the fabric are formed with a long pin while the fabric lies around the barrel, it's then roped and wet to set, waistband etc. added later.
or just pins?
Some beautiful stationary/desk items, I particularly liked the pencil sharpeners,
have been trying to hunt one down but with no luck so far.
Loved this child's desk.
I just liked the faces on these peg toys.
