One-of-a-kind wall hanging handwoven from biodegradable spun silk and bamboo yarn, reducing impact on the environment. Dalia uses a double cloth structure to form intricate geometric blocks in the weft, juxtaposed by the organic nature of the hand dip-dyed warp. Due to this, each piece is unique and will vary slightly from the one pictured.
