If you follow my blog regularly you know that I am transfixed by anything with an alpine theme: edelweiss, cowbells, dirndls, snowflakes, schnapps and cuckoo clocks. So when in the midst of my April ski tour in the alps we descended into Zermatt, Switzerland for the night I immediately went out and window shopped. And I do mean “window shop”. Our group had skied from Italy to Zermatt, carrying just what we needed on our backs, staying in mountain huts along the way. Alas, it was impossible for me to fit those amazing hand-stitched pony hide boots with the skier on them, or the equally cool Luis Trenker daisy shoes into my already stuffed pack. But I did get my fix of alpine themed paraphernalia even though I didn’t carry any of it back over the mountains with me!

So many great textiles
