Inspired by the language of traditional Eastern and Hutsul fabrics, this bright and bold wool wall hanging is hand woven in Poland in the kilim technique. Wool used for production was obtained from live sheep bred in the vicinity of the mountainous village of Koniaków and dyed with non-toxic dyes. Each piece is tagged and signed by the artist.
