Taking a weaving technique on a journey produces such a spirited and freeform opportunity in a woven cloth. I’m calling it a journey weave because some of the techniques I learnt directly from Kenzo Jo in Japan lack established nomenclature (I think so?- Irene Emery’s classic Primary Structures of Fabrics is on my dusty wishlist.) This cloth is just an extension of one of those techniques – the Mt Fuji technique. It reminds me of this. For the weave techs it doesn’t use any supplementary weft except to add extra splashes of colour. It uses the same weft thread throughout in a rhythmical progression of overdoing the weft ease as you go.
As I used cotton I know I will be possibly caught up in doorknobs everywhere if I create some clothing but if I used wool and modified the ease I think it would work very well in clothing. But I’ll try it with cotton anyway.
