In greek mythology, Lito conquered the heart of Zeus with her great beauty. She became a goddess. Lito, in greek language, means something or someone simple who enjoys living in an easy environment. Lito is a little girl that I met recently. This series is woven using plain weave, the most basic weaving structure.
This piece’s warp has been dyed by hand with natural dyes once it was chained so it creates an uneven colour. These dyes are NOT stains, only permanent pigments have been used.
