A page from a feature a few years ago in World of Interiors--one's favorite magazine, after all--showing fashionable new textiles of the season. The photos were taken in Mongolia with help (as one can see) of locals. I believe these two are circus performers. Have never been able to throw picture away. Archaic animal hide booties have a certain allure. Guy on the left: Mongolian pudge of the highest order.
And World of Interiors: utterly blithe and undismayed, as always, on issues of global capitalism, exploitation of underclass, Orientalism, etc., etc.
