Jewel-like iridescent hummingbirds are hand woven in silk and metallic thread on a black cashmere background.
Hummingbird is an exceptionally fine tapestry, and though designed for use on the floor is also ideal as a wall hanging. Available from stock in a range of sizes.
The slit-tapestry or Aubusson technique of weaving is one of the finest and most challenging ways of making a rug. The minute size of each stitch allows the weaver to produce designs of great intricacy, and requires much skill, experience and time. The silk stitches are woven onto a delightfully soft cashmere backdrop.
