The Year of the Horse
January 31st is celebrated as Chinese New Year. This year is the Year of the Horse according to the Chinese zodiac. As you have read in this blog, my husband and I spent time in China this past fall. I would like to share some photos of various Chinese textiles we encountered from vintage to contemporary.

Happy New Year, especially if you were born in the Year of the Horse!
