Dazzling stripes and diamonds celebrate the traditional craft of wool coverlet weaving practiced by the women of Appalachia in the southern United States. They built rustic cabins in remote areas and filled them with home goods crafted materials at hand. They lived by hunting, gathering and small-scale agriculture. For coverlets, women grew flax and cotton, raising sheep for wool they hand-carded and spun. Traditional colors of blue, red and green, woven on a light warp, were derived from indigo, walnut shells and colored flora. Patterns range from circles to intricate eye-dazzlers, hand-loomed in the four-harness overshot method. The Appalachian artistry of the woven coverlet
