Q: What is this beautiful thing?

Regular price $74.50 sale

A:  Whatever you want it to be.  

It's a Scarf, It's a Shawl, It's a Table Runner!?
It's Incredible.

When I first saw this weaving it literally took my breath away. I almost kept it for myself. Jaspe is a unique process and these particular designs even more so. Each of the colored areas within the jaspe panel has been individually syringe injected with dye. Panels of Rose Red, Yellow Gold, Maroon, Khaki and a plethora of colors within the jaspe designs of butterflies, birds and baskets.

¡Qué Magnífico!
