Hard to find, older indigo pieces in very good conditon, with the old dyed patterns, and all were used and soft from wear and washing. This piece has 8 hand woven, lighter weight cotton panels hand-stitched together; approximately 39 x 66; then stitch dyed with an overall oval pattern (that looks like mouths to me, but was told it may represent shells) and stitch dyed Xs at both ends. Very good condition: There are three holes in the piece (two at either end, and one very small one in the center) that have been repaired on the back with patches, (where the inside of the shell images is lighter blue), and one tiny hole close to one end.
I was lucky to have first choice of several large containers of textiles. I chose pieces in the best condition and/or those with the most unique and collectible designs. I will note or photograph any damage or problems. Please continue to watch my site as I continually add more pieces for you to view.
