Saori for weaving and designing textiles
I am an authorized dealer for Saori looms and handweaving accessories in Australia. Saori is more than a tool for creating textiles it is also a philosophy developed by Misao Jo in Japan. It invites community and an openess in which freedom and relaxation ensues. It doesn’t actively promote the technical aspects of traditional weaving and celebrates differences and uneveness if it occurs within a cloth…just like people! We’re then invited to create clothing or scarves from our cloth working out the best way to create uniqueness and accommodate the unusual.
The techniques utilise a different part of the brain to traditional weaving and this is one of the many reasons I’m a weaver…I never stop learning and enjoying it.
