blankets & rugs

THESE LARGE WEAVINGS are used by nomads to cover their food and household storage bags, which are piled neatly to double as a room separator wall in the house.   The covers are both protective (waterproof), and aesthetic.  They are hand-spun and woven from yak-hair, wool, and sometimes added cotton string for color.   They can be used in the modern world for rugs, bed-spreads, couch covers, or anything that strikes your fancy.
