Tapestries

The tapestries are often created by groups of women in cooperatives or job creation programs. These tapestries are created using unusual and culturally specific techniques. Frequently, the tapestries are woven using natural fibers from home raised animals or locally found plants. The materials are hand-dyed and spun to create the unique features in the chosen materials. The subjects reflect the cultures of the workers and are frequently created in bright and vivid colors or in the colors of their native environment. These tapestries may be displayed as wall hangings, floor rugs, table mats or clothing and accessories.
