Richard making a warp for a new stripe fabric in cotton and bamboo for mens shirting.
Designing at the loom. As we weave, it's important to record the layout- warp and weft formats, how many ends and picks per inch, all that technical stuff. So that we can repeat it if the scarf becomes a best-seller.
New designs for our upcoming shows (see "spring" schedule below) These are scarves woven from recycled cotton with an overlay of soy wool fiber which also becomes a selvedge fringe when cut and finished. You'll have to come to the show to see the finished product- very fun and funky!
