Persian carpets that adorned the walls of the apartments of all wealthy citizens in the Land of the Soviets have long been considered bad manners in the modern world. If before they boasted, now they are often even shy. But blankets, on the contrary, more and more often fall on the walls not only of apartments, but also of prestigious exhibition centers, studios, creative workshops and other public institutions.
This creativity cannot be called a new trend in the art world - even in the Land of the Soviets, decent girls created such things at cutting and sewing courses and in the circles of young needlewomen. However, if in those days all girls' products became real pillowcases for pillows and bedspreads for sofas, beds and armchairs, today such "covers" are exhibited in galleries and sold at auctions for big money.
Surprisingly, male names are more and more common among the authors of the most beautiful patchwork canvases. Well, it's time to admit that cutting and sewing have long ceased to be an exclusively female occupation, and that often men do such works much better.
