The Alphabet Of Arcane Trades: P is for...

P is for...

 

Piece Broker

A dealer in fabric remnants to sell again. I read about this trade and am reminded of my mother Dee, who specialised in Islamic textiles from Central Asia. She travelled the world to find out all she could about textiles and instilled a similar passion in me. Perhaps she was not so interested in selling the fabrics on, but she had a keen eye and knew her fabrics better than anyone I know. Her travels to far and away places saw her return with incredible pieces that highlight incredible skill and vision from early textile producers. I see the piece broker of yesteryear reflected in my mother's memory.
