Do you ever get goosebumps when you see a spectacular piece? Did you get them when you saw this one?  We did!

What appears at first glance as a rather boring red banded weaving becomes delicious eye candy on closer inspection! This piece was created to be used as a double saddle blanket. The loom artist used a beautiful diamond twill design which gives beautiful depth and movement to the piece. Do you see the lighter bands?  Those were made by taking red American flannel bolt of material and unraveling it.  Then the long pieces of thread would be carded together to form thicker pieces of yarn.  A feat of creative artistry in itself. 

We have an excellent video on facebook in which Steve is describing this piece.  You can watch it here:

A unique blend of history, Native American culture and storytelling make these weavings an art like no other.

To be showcased on your walls or grace your floors, this functional heirloom is one-of-a-kind piece of history that took 100's of hours to create and will last many lifetimes. We'd love to tell you more about it!
