Description
The textile length has a raw linen ground, handprinted with multiple stencils, forming a repeat design. The design consists of abstracted pinwheel blossoms in combinations of purple, yellow, orange, red and pink. The blossoms are arranged in concentric rings of approximately twenty-two blossoms, with a single blossom between each grouping. The top and bottom edges are finished with overlocking stitch in black cotton.
