A hand-woven pink curtain made of wool. It is a bright pink curtian with black and white lines, are about an inch wide, throughout middle. On one end there are crocheted flowers in black, tan, dark blue, yellow, and a dull pink color off of the curtain. A few inches above the flowers there is a white section that has blue and pink flowers and green and brown stems. On the other end of the curtian there is the same pattern but the flowers are not hanging off the edge and the fabric on the one end makes a loop for a curtian rod.
Hand-made by the great great grandmother of the donor in Greece. Would have been made using local wool and a loom.
Item is unique because it is a vibrant pink tapestry, something that is not normally created by Greeks.
