UNICORN IN CAPTIVITY KNEE HIGH SOCKS
These Unicorn in Captivity Knee High Socks are based on a 16th century French tapestry series called The Hunt of the Unicorn. Can you believe that? Yep, crazy as it is, humans have been obsessed with putting images of unicorns on fabric centuries before we decided to start doing it. In that respect, is it be fair to call these Unicorn in Captivity Knee High Socks “the first pair of unicorn socks in recorded history?” Yes, we think it is.
Artist Unknown, The Unicorn in Captivity (from The Unicorn Tapestries), ca. 17th century. Wool, silk, metallic threads.
