DescriptionThe textile is made of yellow cotton with planghi motifs. It is tied to produce bulls-eyes of various sizes, patterned in yellow, red, and deep blue on a deep blue ground. Patterns of circles are sometimes known as “big moons and little moons” or “moons and fruits". This example has been run through three dye baths to produce the deep blue, bright orange, and yellow hues.
