(These unique family markings were used so that the farmers were able to identify their sacks filled with grain at the markets. This also made it easier to return the empty sacks back to the rightful owner after the market.)

These textiles are by nature extremely eco- friendly as they were naturally made from homegrown materials, home retted (in local lakes and ponds) and woven together by hand. The average age of these textiles is around 100 years old woven with linen, hemp, cotton or a combination of the three.

What we do at GOVOU is to reinterpret the use of these fabrics.
