Look what he picked up for me on his latest business trip:
Hand-stitched fabric made by the Kuna Indians of Panama
I've only seen this photo - can't wait for him to get back next weekend to see them properly (and to see him - of course!).
Each panel is approx. 30 x 50 cms and, given the hours of work that must have gone into them, the price he paid was a pittance ($25 US for the pair). It's criminal, but I'm rather glad he thought I might like them.
I think I can see a very funky tote bag in my future. It would be a shame to cut into these, so I'm going to keep it very simple, but I'll have to wait until I've taken possession before I really know what I'm going to make them into.
