DescriptionThis woven piece uses shades of black, dark navy, purple, and cream. Subtle color changes of the threads in close proximity give three-dimensionality to the central circle and a shadowy effect to the piece overall. There is fringe at the top and bottom and tufts of wool come out in the middle.
