Folk Art Favorites

"International Folk Artists Preserve Cultures and Create Opportunities" and make beautiful things!
Palestinian Pottery.
Pleated skirt from China. Photo does not do this piece justice. It's stunning!
Shipibo embroidered textiles.
Lakiya Weaving, nomadic, tribal women from the deserts of Israel create the most amazing naturally dyed woven, wool textiles. They were my absolute absolute favorite!
Gorgeous patterns in these South African baskets.
Shawls from Mexico.
Amazing woven hats from Southeast Asia.

This doesn't even stratch the surface of all of the beautiful things at this year's folk art market. If anyone have any questions about the market or want more info. on any products, artisans let me know and I'll try and help!
