Sakiori weaving

Sakiori weaving is the ancient Japanese craft of weaving new cloth from old. Here is the beginning of a new project in the weaveyourself studio. A beautiful silk bedspread donated by a friend is the inspiration to give sakiori weaving a try. First, the cloth has to be cut into strips. I am using the Saori sakiori cutter to cut 15mm strips. This is the very beginning, of the journey. It won’t be fast but I’m excited as to where it will lead.20151114_164918 20151114_164907 (1) 20151114_164834 20151114_165007
