The Gwen

110.00

Traditional Mro weaving made by hand on a backstrap loom. Works superbly as a table runner or a wall hanging. In Mro society this weaving is called a stinpong and is used as a baby carrier. As the warp is so closely packed, the intricate traditional patterns in the weft are only visible on the front face of the textile while the solid border is the same front and back.
