Made in hand woven hemp, linen or jute, usually with typical woven stripes in indigo, madder or saffron by rural agricultural communities. Cart covers are about 2.5m square and make good tablecloths, curtaining and sofa covers–any damaged ones can be cut up for cushions. Ours come from middle Europe, but many communities globally have similar supplies, that are either worn or no longer needed and ready for a new life.

One on my own sofa, thrown over to lighten the room  for the summer. I especially like the less usual yet  time-less and time-honoured turmeric with indigo stripes.
