Shipibo Embroidered Square #14
Complex linear fractal patterns are distinctive to the Shipibo women who design and make these colorful embroideries. Cotton fabric forms the base cloth that is then painted with the earthen clay slip from the Amazon region in Peru. Each square is a unique imaginative hand-stitched design and takes weeks to make depending on the size. The surface is richly embroidered. Use these squares to cover pillows, insert into a jacket back, or mount on fabric for display.
The edges of this square are hemmed.
