Sunday Stamps | T(extile)

Today Sunday Stamps-II is dedicated to the letter T. I have chosen stamps related to the textile world.

Self-adhesive stamps dedicated to a theme that I find curious: Flowers and artistic professions (Fleurs et métiers-d'art), issued by La Poste (France) the last spring, as a 12-stamps set (See here the complete set). They show details of artistic objects from museums. On the stamp in the left you can see an embroidered flower made of cotton and silk yarn.


Stamps from Croatia, issued on 30 September 2008. They are dedicated to the Croatian Ethnografic heritage. See here the 5 stamps of the sheetlet.



Traditional Portuguese Embroideries. I have received two of the six stamps (see here), issued in 2011.



One of the latest country definitives issued by Royal Mail, issued on 21 March 2017, symbolising Scotland.


Self-adhesive stamp from Brazil, issued on 30 December 2005, designed by Hector Consani. Dedicated to different professions, this one for the dressmakers.
