Any tips on the leopard? After this contrado order for what Charlie did, I’ll have every tapestry piece but the cat.


I know patience while scrolling eBay and Etsy every day. But outside of ‘vintage leopard tapestry or vintage cat tapestry’, are there any other keywords? Maybe even other sites I should be watching ?

LOL join the club, you just gotta keep looking. It could take a year to find one, only to have someone out bid you. My recommendation is if you find one on ebay and there's only bidding, I would ask the seller what they would take to end the auction early. Otherwise if someone else, myself included, sees it the bidding will go high. Into the hundreds high...

That’s how I ended the peacock tapestry bid. So that’s fair advice. I actually ordered that pillow you showed me before that’s made out of the leopard tapestry. I’m going to see just how much of it is missing and what I can do. The seller contacted me and claimed it’s just folded in half, but the seam did take up a small portion of the mid section. Still going to keep an eye out for it in tapestry form too.

Yeah that's what I would have done as a "place holder" until you find a good one. I have a wrong way leopard as a place holder too. It actually looks fine in front, it's the tail being backwards in the back that kinda throws the look off, but it's on the lower back so it's not very obvious. Just keep looking, you'll find one eventually.

I've been recovering from an injury and for past 6 weeks been looking as always every day for patches, tapestries and pauls items. I've found a fair few items for the jacket ( the red A on collar although some dont add this is a WW2 9th division patch) and also on some days I didnt have access to the internet missed out on vintage patch and an original lady 'rear' tapestry in my local town, crazy to think it's been under my nose haha.

Building this jacket is rather easy, the challenge is finding the items or even seeing ones pop up and losing them after months of searching.

With the cheetah, peacock 3 years ago I started searching didnt think I would get them and they appeared within 1 month of searching and for very cheap. Over 3 years I've been buying any tapestry related to the jacket as they vary in colour and orientation. For the last 1.5 years I can safely say I've not come across any other cheetah tapestry that is red eye or even not accurate colour or the peacock red, I've seen blue but it's not worth getting.

They are getting extremely harder to obtain. What makes it truly harder is the listings. I do listings for a day job but when sellers put up the item they dont seem to build the listing as good, for example the lady with tiger/leopard was just listed as 'wall rug'. My advise would be look for other similar listings and save the searches, some call the cheetah/leopard tapestry as panther or lion haha, quite funny. Also reverse image search helps greatly.

Now with current trends ebay and etsy are the main search engines but other apps help like depop.
