​(videa to follow later)



Volunteers:  husband & niece




Handnade for self use, woven in 3 parts and stitched together. Used as rugs, seat covers and blankets, these are woven in winter when there isn’t much else to do. Each piece takes a month of 4-5 hours of weaving a day to finish. 

Simple. Traditional. Signatures of Identity.
