1 - plain weaving in sand/honeybrown soft but not too fine cotton with hornet heads attachments !!!

2 - white fine cotton, with geometric pattern weaving

3 - just like number one but with job tears (seeds) attached

number 2 + 3 can be found in various books (best jacobs julian - fürer haimendorf collection in pitt rivers oxford)
the one with the hornet heads i never saw in any book.

regards
udo
