Special Signature - Vintage Egyptian Folk Art Tapestry - Flatweave Rug - 6'2" x 7'8" ft
Size: 6'2" x 7'8" ft - Signed by Egyptian Folk Art weaver Hussein!
Some of the world's best tapestries are the spirited and fanciful pieces currently being woven in several small farming villages of Egypt. A flourishing folk art form, this tapestry art began with one man's dedicated work years ago with groups of young children in a settlement called Harrania. From there, the tapestry crafts spread. Woven both in weavers' homes and in small studios, the pieces vary widely in style -- from primitive to sophisticated.
The tapestries range from miniatures to mural size and are produced by both men and women as well as young developing artists. Tapestry prices vary greatly, depending upon overall size and complexity, artistic merit, and the weaver's experience and reputation.
Good condition! No stains, no odor. Sides and ends original. As shown in pictures.
