Handwoven, March/April 2015
Digital Magazine | 88 Pages
This issue is dedicated to the joy of fusion weaving, with projects and stories of encounters between weavers and cultural traditions. 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.
