Woven hot pad (trivet) and center piece with black and white bands (TP125)
This hot pad and center piece was designed by a Bora artisan from the village of Brillo Nuevo on the Ampiyacu River. It features a striking contrast of white and black bands in rings around a natural off-white chambira palm fiber center. Depending on the season, the black fiber is colored with natural plant dyes such as leaves from the rifari tree or fruit from the huitillo tree. Like all hand-made crafts, the exact design made by different artisans may vary from the photo of the model.
