This grey tone table runner features a geometric design which is carefully hand woven. Made in the north western Chin State in Myanmar, these table runners are made from pure cotton and are coloured using natural vegetable dyes. This table runner is reversible as the underside can be displayed as a plain white with a grey stripe trim if you prefer.
They are woven on a backstrap loom, following traditional Chin patterns. Each purchase helps the Chin artisans to develop their traditional skills, knowledge and creativity while supporting sustainable employment. They are beautiful and truly special pieces for your home.
Traditionally weaving was practised by older women in Chin State, however in recent years young women have been trained in the craft, allowing them to revive a cultural handicraft and gain reliable income.
