This large scale 50" x 41.5" handwoven tapestry weaving is constructed from all natural materials.
This piece is suspended on a custom designed walnut wood hanger that was milled specifically for this piece, locally in Rohnert Park, CA. The mustard yellow in the middle is 100% wool roving that has been overlaid and handstiched with my Walnut colored leather that is a by-product of the beef industry and is sourced from a local small business. The bubbly border and fringe is a natural white, made from Rambouillet sheep wool roving, a Carbon & Climate Beneficial Wool from Cedarville, Ca. The outside blue made from is Shoestring sized Felted Roving from Australian Corriedale Wool, Hand-felted in Ukiah, CA. The sheep that provided this wool are from a target grazing company based in Lake County, CA. This company supports the usage of sheep grazing to minimize equipment usage on local orchards and wineries. This wool is considered salvaged as it would have otherwise been discarded due to vegetable matter and short staple. It has been dyed with local composted indigo from Sonoma County and hand-dyed in Cotati,CA, custom for the piece.
