Handwoven, March/April 2015 Digital Edition
Handwoven March/April 2015
Digital Magazine | 84 Pages
This issue is dedicated to the joy of fusion weaving, with projects and stories of encounters between weavers and cultural traditions.Backstrap weaver Laverne Waddington tells of her travels and the weavers she has met. Amanda Robinette gives us a modern take on sakiori, traditional Japanese rag-weaving, and Anne Vitell tells us how contemporary Diné weavers (whom you may know as Navajo) are evolving the designs handed down to them. We have towels inspired by the patterns of imperial Russia and the bright colors of India, Japanese noren panels to grace your home, shibori scarves commemorating Colorado wildfires, and a contemporary jacket with an Asian flair that celebrates the breaking down of the borders that separate us. For the simple moments that are universal, we have a classic linen bag to hold fresh bread, and a baby wrap designed for a man’s wardrobe. And Tom Knisely brings a smile while teaching us about our looms and the sweet spots thereon.
