Threads in Color

Visited a ladies tailor shop the other day. A good number of thread reels in every possible color were displayed on the wall. What a delightful sight.

What is more interesting is that these threads are made in Pakistan and not China. It is a miracle that this industry has survived the Chinese invasion.

One rack was reserved for laces and ribbons.

Custom made clothes are still popular among the ladies.

Enjoy.

    You shocked me with all this color today, LOL. I am so used to you doing toned black and whites my eyes almost popped out with this intense color. Nice work.

      Thanks Joe. Although I do convert color images to black and white, I love b&w output from my Lumix LX5 and Fuji XE1. Sometimes the color is what I want to show.
      Sorry for the color shock. But then one’s eyes need some exercise once in a while.

    Yes, it is amazing that they’re not from China.

    Our Australian fashion industry can’t compete with the cheaper labour in China. I used to work in the Fashion Industry some 40 years ago. Only the more exclusive designs are still made here nowadays.

  3. A wonderful study of pattern and colour! We’d love to see more!

  4. The first photo has nice composition. The colors a very pleasant.
