Antique blue and white piece in Dräll technique

Regular price $129.00

Blue and white hand-woven piece in "Dräll" weaving technique. It looks like half of something, doesn´t it? It is in fact not a cut-out of a bigger piece but the first piece of a larger never finished tablecloth. In poorer houses, people could not afford and had not enough space for a big weaving machine, so smaller pieces were first woven, then sewn together. This tell us that this piece was coming from a modest house, possibly in the countryside.
