Embroidered Place Mat/Tray Cloth/African Art 19" X 14" Handmade Madagascar Vintage
This colorful embroidered art on pure 100% cotton has 35 intricately embroidered figures and trees in scenes from daily life. It is handmade in Madagascar and and has so many uses; its ready for framing; use as a place mat or tray cloth. The generous size makes it suitable for many more uses.
Another intricate detail of this textile art is that the long braids and ponytails hang semi-loose as if they're flowing in the wind.
As each cloth is handmade, the embroidered people can be slightly different. Two different tray cloths are shown in the photos in this listing so that you can see how slight the differences are.
THIS LISTING IS FOR 1 TEXTILE ONLY
What does vintage mean if the items look so new? These items have not been used and I will make a new term for them; New Vintage. They are vintage because it has been over 20 years since I brought them into this country and as I brought so many containers full of items, I have never had the time to show them all. In this line of embroidery, I have boxes that are filled and each items is still wrapped in plastic, giving no credence to the thought that you can't save textiles in plastic. I purchased, bedding, oven mitts, lounging pajamas and many more items from this group of ladies, eventually, I will be able to take photos of more items and list them.
Approximate Dimensions are 19.5" X 14.5"
