This gorgeous table runner has been handwoven by artisans in the Himalayan country of Bhutan. The table runner is characterised by a traditional colourful Bhutanese design with raised patterned motifs. It also features striped vertical red and blue bands on both sides and is finished off with a fringe at either ends. Inspired by the Buddhist colours, its bright yellow colour motifs - made using vegetable-dyed sheep yarn - provides a graceful and unique appearance that brings a sense of calmness to any home.
Such table runners are commonly seen in Bhutanese homes.
An exclusive item to take home or gift to anyone who love and appreciate natural, handwoven products.
Note: As the product is handwoven, the table runner has loose threads on the back of the cloth, which is but a natural feature of most Bhutanese handwoven fabrics.
