infant carrier

Baby carrier formed of a rectangle of warp-faced handwoven fabric made of coarse yarn in predominately blue and red stripes, folded in half across its length with selvedge stitched to itself on one side. The warp ends have been twined aong the short edge and then formed into long tassels by plaiting. Each plait has been bound to the adjacent plait with red, blue and gold yarn. From each of the the two free corners hangs a band used to secure the carrier to the wearer's back.
