BesTeam Feature - Nevita

As a knitter myself, I am enjoying browsing Nevita's shop on Etsy.

Nevita's shop is full of handmade knit scarves, shrugs, neck cowls, handcrafted fiber necklaces and hand stitched gobelin tapestries.

Nevita is a mother of a little girl who she enjoys spending time with.  She loves watching her grow and laugh. Which gives her lots of positive energy and faith in her etsy shop. She believes in her creations and their ability to symbolize how precious and beautiful life is.

She learned to knit and make gobelin tapestry, when she was a child.  During school vacations, she went to her grandparent's home, where her grandmother thought her different handmade crafts, such as knitting, crocheting, sewing and others things. Throughout the years, she ended up focusing on knitting and gobelin tapestry, and found that she enjoyed these crafts the most. It was originally a hobby, and after her daughter's birth she decided she wanted to share the products of her passion with people around the world.

Fall is in the air and the leaves are starting to turn and I just couldn't help but notice her Halloween Set.

WHAT IS GOBELIN TAPESTRY:

A tapestry works started by two Flemish weavers , Marc de Comans and Francois de la Planche , called to France by Henri IV in 1601 , was later added . In 1662 , Louis XIV purchased the Tapestries manufactory and there Colbert united all the royal craftsmen , creating a royal art furniture works .

In the 20th century , after a long period of regress , the old tapestry art again through a spectacular turning point in its evolution being present as a decorative element in painting art , jewellery baskets , ornament pillows , framed in fancy works.
