I really can’t go too long without weaving wearables. 😀 Another version of my Rustic Poncho pattern. #rusticponcho #handwovenponcho #handweaversofinstagram #handwoven #handspunyarn #rigidheddleweaving #schachtflip #zozofiberarts #etsyweavingpatterns #etsyseller

It’s taken us around three years to develop our range of naturally dyed fabrics. We use a combination of food waste, foraged plants and medicinal ayervedic plants to make up our spectrum. Once you start using natural dyes it’s very hard to understand why you would ever go back to the synthetic alternative. The colours change in tone and shade depending on the light, they feel alive and each meter of fabric is one of a kind. It takes so much longer to produce our fabrics as each meter is woven by hand... the price is a lot higher but the cost to people and environment a lot lower! We are going to be releasing a small batch of fabric to our online shop, perfect for the budding sewers amongst you! 🧵 . . . #ammasrilanka #fabric #naturallydyed #plantdye #growncolour #socialenterprise #pastel #craft #sewersofinstagram #handloom #handwoven #weave #handdyed #botanicalcreativity #botanicalpickmeup #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #haberdashery #ecofriendly #sustainablefashion #slowmade #brandswithpurpose #seekthesimplicity #slowfashion #womensempowerment #socialjustice #ngo #srilanka

My first raanu, completely wove with wool I dyed using plants I foraged from the region where it was created! How about the exhibition space? Tullitupa or the “old customs house,” atmospheric in its preserved state of peeling wall-paper, paint and rusting metal. . . . #kristinestadresidency #kristinestad #strandgatan #suomi #beautyofsuomi #wool #letilopiyarn #plantdyed #naturaldyed #handdyed #foraged #handwoven #woolweaving #weavingwool #weftfacedweaving #raanu

Slowly but surely, a few rows a day, this one is growing into something I didn’t plan but love 😊 reminds me of the cliffs in south Portugal we’ve seen this spring, but maybe it’ll end up upside down, like on this photo and will be something completely else. I don’t know yet! . All these woolen yarns we’re plant dyed by me. Blues are of course made with indigo and woad, browns and tans come from birch leaves, walnuts, oak leaves and avocados. The loom is a German production frame loom with a rotating heddle bar, which helps to put the alternating threads up and down and speeds up the process. (If you’d like a loom like that too, I stock them in my online shop in 3 sizes.) I could also use bobbins or shuttles to weave with but for this one I want to work with my fingers as much as I can so I either weave with a tapestry needle or with my bare fingers only. And I don’t mind it takes forever!
