Native Prairie Grasses in a Handwoven Runner

Just finished twisting the fringes on this Reppweave Runner, woven with antique whites and slate colored pearl cotton in the warp,  pearl cotton and native prairie grasses in the weft.  It measures 5'5" long and 13" wide.  Big Bluestem and Indian grass are harvested from the land we live on.  These tall prairie grasses, harvested in late summer and early fall  give this piece uniqueness and durability.  The reppweave structure adds to the beauty and strength of this piece.
