Patchwork Tapestry. Hand-sewn three dimensional fabric collage depicting Noah’s Ark.
The term “arpillera” means a rough, course fabric. It derives from an old Chilean tradition of using old remnants of fabric to make hand-sewn appliqués. These patchwork tapestries are made by a co-op of women in Peru and they tell stories of life. This one shows Noah’s Ark. Variations in color and textures are natural to this item and make it unique. Hanger not included.
