Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Upside down and inside out! Several wool shawls dating from the 18th and 19th centuries were being repacked for storage when this one caused some confusion: which side is the “right side” (the side that should go “out” when the shawl is worn)? The decorated paisley borders have been sewn “right sides to wrong sides” at two corners. A sloppy seamstress’ mistake? A prescient deconstructivist design choice? Not at all! This shawl is a giant square intended to be folded along the diagonal when worn: the mis-matched corners are actually a clever adjustment to allow both folded halves to be “right sides out” when in use. 1 hour ago via Facebook
