The amount of detail on the textile is remarkable. There's almost no empty space! and making each figure on a back strap loom takes lots of knowledge and skill!
This piece is so beautiful that an be framed. It can also be used as a table runner or a home decor accent.
Creating a textile like this takes years of knowledge and weeks of dedication. With your shopping you support the work of indigenous families, with whom we work directly on a fair trade basis.
