Vintage Americana Macramé Plant Hanger

This 40 inch red, white, blue and tan macramé hanging basket was made with re purposed vintage yarn from a – now dead- local sewing industry. Still on the original wood spool, this yarn was used to make seat covers for trucks and cars in the 1970’s. It also may have been used to make braided rugs as well. Western Dynasty- Toughest seat covers in the world! (Sadly, another victim of Walmart!)
Reborn in this plant hanger!
Shown with a 5 inch planter, and custom made black round metal ring for hanging.
