Hand Woven Fabrics
In our era of insta-everthing, you’ll definitely feel the spirit of time-honored traditions––sacrifice and patience, skill and beauty––that only comes to the one who waits. To touch the fabric is to feel history. Hand-woven Dobby fabrics go through many stages to achieve their vibrant beauty, geometric patterns and gorgeous texture. Born from natural raw fibers, artisans work their magic by spinning then submerging them into carefully prepared pigments. Once the fiber is dried and spun into skeins, weaving begins on large looms. The warp is threaded and foot pedals are used in concert with wooden shuttles to create wonderfully intricate textures and patterns beyond compare.
