Poppy Fuller Abbott Placemat

AUD 315.00
Size: One Size

Brighton-based weaver Poppy Fuller Abbott creates textile works using natural yarns and dyes, often from plants grown on her mother's allotment.

To create this placemat, she dyes the hemp yarn warp and weft firstly with weld, then woad, using a resist technique. The fabric is then handwoven on an 8 shaft Harris loom and the edges hand-knotted.

Being handmade, each varies in colour, pattern and form.
