Odd stamps : 06 c Stamps on cotton / silk

Austria is the leading country in Europe when it comes to 'odd' stamps.

Another example is the following 'stamp'.
This sheetlet isn't really a sheetlet either.

It's a rectangled gummed sheet, but the oval stamp in the middle isn't really a separate stamp, since the perforation is printed and not real.
The design is embroidery and is at least one mm thick.

This embroided texture was glued to the sheet.
Face value of the sheet / stamp is € 2,65.
So far, I haven't seen any postally used versions.

It's not easy to find those odd stamps, as they are quite expensive, and wanted.
This item was made in 2010.
