Textiles are an integral part of our lives, without them we don’t exist.
Starting from winding yarn on a warping frame, the whole process of weaving is executed by hand. The warp is beamed onto the loom, every thread is then placed in a heddle eye, threaded through a reed slot and weaving can begin. Handweaving requires precision and concentration. Thanks to the weaver’s hands, the weft yarn, placed in a shuttle, is travelling between two warp layers. Woven fabrics are the record of careful observation and reflection on the world around.
