These table runners and tapestries were woven in wool by my mother. My mother Antonietta was a very creative, talented and an enthusiast wool weaver and teacher. She made many beautiful tapestries, rugs, blankets, ponchos, scarves, placemat set, cushion covers, table runners, bags, purses and so on.
Weaving is an ancient textile art and craft that involves placing two sets of threads or yarn made of fiber called the warp and weft of the loom and turning them into cloth. This cloth can be plain (in one color or a simple pattern), or it can be woven in decorative or artistic designs, including tapestries.
My grandmother Rita was a very talented artisan and her crochets were very beautiful.
