Thistle Hill Weavers

Thistle Hill Weavers

If the only thing for the kitchen seems to be curtains in the eighteenth-century plain-weave, unglazed worsted called camlet, Thistle Hill Weavers in upstate New York know what it is and how to make it. Lovers of the formal can carefully carry their faded shreds of Versailles-era silk to Scalamandré in Manhattan for perfect copies, or even send a picture of the original, though this old, family-owned firm is also happy to re-create the velvet of Scarlett O’Hara’s (and Carol Burnett’s) Tara-drapery dress.
