welsh tapestry

I bought a sort of gorgeous, sort of vile Welsh tapestry handbag from ebay (where else?). Orange. Brown. Hmmm. But it works. The colours and patterns of Welsh tapestry are quite gorgeous. Their bold colours are nicely balanced by their very rigid patterns.

The description from the Australian War Memorial (ID 140486) reads:
