Sara’s long-awaited and much anticipated green and black feather design. Swirls of perfectly stitched green and black feathers climb the sides of this masterpiece and end perfectly pointed at the top. This masterful coil construction work is created using thin shreds of Chunga palm fibers dyed into various colors, coiled over thicker Naguala palm. Vibrant and rich colors are all vegetal dyes created with roots, berries, leaves, river silt, and natural materials found in the abundant Darien rainforest.
