Textiles

I love collecting   textiles.    I found this little bag at a garage sale last summer.     One can see how contemporary fibre artists  get  inspiration from ethnic textiles..  The band is braided – in very bad condition , but the bag itself is fairly good with just one small worn spot.  The colours are not too faded, the inside being just a bit brighter than the outside.   The yarn is very tightly spun and quite rough, but  I haven’t taken time to  research  it. I don’t know  where the bag is from or what the weave structure is, but a guess is that is is from Peru.
