Crazy weft Kasuri
Well, something went a little different to what I expected in my weft kasuri! It is very free form and improvisational looking when I wanted it to be ordered with design. I think I’ve found the error in my calculations for the weft allowance. I didn’t factor in a washed dyed weft length so I’ll work on that now. However, the design is still beautiful and I’m happy with it. It is very exciting weaving with bobbins full of design, so I think the time spent is worth every second.
Kasuri or ikat techniques can mean unweaving and weaving to get the effects you want, so patience and planning can be vital in it’s process. These technniques are unique and distinctive to woven cloth and other mediums copy the feathered patterns.
