Hemp - a natural choice for your table

indigo and natural woven, originally uploaded by rufusandco.

I love these handwoven hemp fibre runners I found in Chiang Mai this week.
The indigo dyed fibre together with the natural colour looks old and yet modern. 
Perfect to run up an antique oak or a modern IKEA table - 
whatever takes your fancy!

 All one of a kind textiles, 
each piece just 8 metres long
handwoven on a narrow loom
in Northern Thailand
using hemp fibres
which make a strong fabric
perfect for running up your table!

Remember my friend Sarah from Korea who was in Unravelling with us? A lot of her work uses Korean hemp cloth. She makes some really fantastic placemats and coasters. Thought you might be interested. I have some rolls of Korean hemp in my stash awaiting inspiration.
