Roller Bird Bumbaret Towels     

Designer Jean Newsted's comments on how she came up with inspiration for these brilliantly colored towels: "When my daughter was in southern Africa, she sent me a postcard of a colorful lilac-breasted roller bird. I immediately resolved to weave towels for her using that beautiful birdís myriad of colors. In a workshop given by Ruby Leslie, I wove a sample in her variation of a traditional bumbaret weave. This weave struck me as the perfect vehicle to show off the beauty of a roller bird because it allows using many warp colors in a fascinating yet orderly fashion."
