It's no secret that I like toile. I have posted about it in the past, specifically my discovery of Town Toiles. When we were on hiatus I saw an article in The Richmond Times Dispatch about an artist who started sketching local landmarks to create the city's own toile design- I guess she figured it would take a while for Town Toiles to take an interest in Richmond. You can see the results here. At $70+ per yard (yikes!) the fabric is a real splurge, but it could be used to create thoughtful gifts for special occasions- maybe a pillow for a graduation or engagement present. Now what I really need to do is go in with someone on the design fee for a Charlottesville based toile...that would be a real hit.
