Details

Precise geometric motifs alternate with birds in an exquisite design. From talented members of Women United for Artisan Development, the cushion cover is woven by hand on a backstrap loom. Cording defines the borders, and the back is solid red. "We love birds," the artisans confide. "This design was woven by women who live in Quiché, a forested region in western Guatemala."

Should one of the threads snag, they suggest you pull it back into place from the back of the fabric with a fine crochet hook.

"Lovely accent to dining room"

This table runner is just beautiful, and has so many colors in it, it could go with lots of decor. It sa bit long for my table in it s everyday length but I can fold it up for now and then when we extend it for company it will be perfect.
