 Hand Woven Cotton Chenille upholstery fabric is also naturally Hand Dyed with indigo by Botanical Shades. Diamond pattern woven in cotton chenille is sturdy and can be used to upholster a chair . Several yards are available for sale .
Commissions accepted if interested in hand woven textiles for the home interior design . Hand woven means I use a floor loom and throw a shuttle filled with yarn back and forth as I weave the intricate pattern . Pedals under the loom raise and lower the threads in a system that creates the design .
Hand dyed means that Botanical Shades used indigo plant dye to create the color .
Unique and each pieces is one of a kind .

Civil War Flag of TRUCE

I have woven the FLAG of TRUCE that was waved on the end of a stick at the end of the American Civil war .
Peace and let our differences not keep us apart but unite the country .
Flag of TRUCE 
Just a simple dish towel cut in half and used to end the Civil War at Appomattox 
Tell all that the war is over 
Live in Peace 
The Truce Cloth 
A simple ,hand woven 100% cotton towel brought truce toThe CivilWar on April 9 1865. The Truce was ordered by General Robert E. Lee ,carried on horseback tied to the end of a branch by James Longstreet. 
The remains of this’s monumental cloth are housed today in the National Museum of American History,Smithsonian Institute ,Bering Center. 
This is my exact rendition of that cloth .
