Femias cushion in Betua
The elegant decoration of this cushion accurately revives the weaving of the traditional saddlebags, betua, in the black and white motif interrupted by a band with small stylised bright polychrome modules depicting women. Realised using the handloom and decorated with the a bagas technique typical of the well-known weaving of Mogoro, it is produced as a strikingly decorative element.
