This amazing Korowai was made by Bonnie. She presented it to her grandson on his graduation.
The Korowai is hand woven in a Taniko pattern using tussah silk and merino wool. Natural dye from onion skins was used with different mordants, to make the colours. The ochre represents Australia, the green represents New Zealand and the blue represents the ocean between the two countries. The feathers are from N.Z. and China.
A truly amazing Korowai handmade with love.
