Using high-quality hand spun wool, mainly vegetable dyes in mostly geometric designs with brighter colours which in time becomes muted. They are woven by skilled weavers in the region and have no set designs where The designs are passed from mother to daughter. They have been highly collectable due to simplicity and the geometric design which appeals to most art lovers around the world.
