Designs combining earthen clay slip and colorful embroidery are distinctive to the Shipibo women of the Amazon basin and are used expertly in this table runner.
These complex linear fractal patterns are made on a base cloth of cotton fabric. The central pattern is richly embroidered with various stitch patterns. (Only half of this runner is shown; the design continues throughout the length.)
This runner is an imaginative hand-drawn and handstitched design and takes many weeks for the artisan to create.
