There are still a lot of textile stores in Germany, as I saw recently. Such a a thing is extinct where I live, which is very sad.
Also, if you go to the IV Gemeindebezirk in Wien, there are also still textile and tailoring places, as in times past.
The silk for this cap apparently was recycled from a dress...the color is correct, too.
my list of shops to visit in Vienna next time I get there is getting longer. As there is only one textile shop left here where I live (with nothing coming only near to what I would need) and shops closing down in Graz and Linz, hopefully the slogan "Wien ist anders" proves right.
Dear Sir, thanks. I was in the IV Gemeindebezirk about nine years ago, and along Margaretenstrasse there seemed to me a fair number of tailor places and also the textile places to go with them.
The handicrafts are alive and well in Wien, too, are they not, especially in Neubau and Mariahilf, I think, where I normally stay when I am there.
The Fa. Rochowanski on the Opernring does a fine business in militaria, and they are very good friends of mine. He works closely with the imperial auction house, Dorotheum.
