Dear Threads Forum:
I am a weaver and have recently been awarded a grant to research the technique of weaving with fabric strips in the warp and weft.
I can offer three examples of this technique:
By Jilli Blackwood as seen on her website http://www.jilliblackwood.com/fabrics.htm specifically Textile Ref No: tx18, which is the upper most left hand image.
Also in Ann Sutton’s book “Ideas in Weaving” on pages 52 and 53 (all the pages aren’t numbered, I counted up from page 35). This example is described as “Wool yarn and silk/cotton rag warp and weft by Jilli Blackwood, UK.”
I would also consider the twined rag rugs as described by Bobbie Irwin in her book “Twined Rag Rugs” to use the same technique since the twining is happening on a frame with a fabric strip warp.
If you have used or seen this technique please email me directly at [email protected]
