Tiny delicate embroidery stitches on natural indigo dyed homespun hemp plant fabric from indigofera plants. Size of this piece is 6.5" x 8" and has raw edges. The person who created this made her own indigo dyes from plants growing in the wild, and made her own hemp cloth on which all these minute stitches were made. Photos show both sides. I recently washed it meticulously by hand in a museum type cleaner and dried it in the sun.
