and as we were more or less near where it was held, we went to see it.
Elda Cecchele was a hand-weaver very active in the 1950's and 60's - unfortunately not very famous now - whose textiles were used by famous fashion designers of the time, like Salvatore Ferragamo.
I really liked the display: simple rectangular perspex covered boxes on tables,
with the occasional open box from which a garment would seem to float out.
The boxes contain both samples of her work and examples of the diverse materials she used.
She used fairly traditional weave structures but was very eclectic in the choice of materials:
leather strips, waxed cotton, raffia, tulle, metallic yarn, cellophane...
