For ideas of patterns and creativity - online gallery of carpets

As you have seen and know - lot's of henna-patterns are rather similar to those we can see on textile and carpets.
Here is something to watch and maybe got some inspiration - Estonian National Museum has put their collection of carpets on-line.

As the page is fully in Estonian, here are some comments:
This is a link to reginal gallery:
http://vaibad.erm.ee/index.php?option=com_zoo&view=category&layout=category&Itemid=53

Regions:
Põhja-Eesti - North-Estonia
Lõuna-Eesti - South-Estonia
Lääne-Eesti - West-Estonia
Eesti Saared - Estonian Islands
Eesti teadmata - unknown/unlocated from Estonia
Määratlemata - unspecified
Soome-Ugri - Fenno-Ugric
Muu - Other

You can have juts fotos, zoom into details or choose 3d-view, then you can even see threads, tiny holes, deffects etc.

Hope you enjoy!

Very cool!  Too bad it's not in English, but it seems pretty straightforward.  I love looking at textiles for henna designs!

Thank you!
