Love Heart Charm in antique fabric with an appliqué

Description

Make a wish! Our Love Heart Charms are a way to bring a little enchantment into your home.

This nostalgic heart is made with a special pure silk brocade that is vintage and probably about fifty years old. It would have been made in England or France, and was originally designed for making church vestments and hangings. It has a rich sheen that’s difficult to capture in a photograph but is gorgeous in person.

It has been embellished with an appliqué made from an antique silk obi fabric as well as vintage glass beads and a brass charm on the base of the hanging loop.

We’ve also used antique French metallic bullion fringing at the bottom and the back is vintage silk.

The lined pocket on the back has been embroidered by us and is for you to add your own special, wishful elements. 

Please note that these are vintage / antique fabrics. Every heart will look different, as they are all cut from different pieces of the fabric.
