What do I make with SAORI handwoven cloth?

Weaving with new colours is always exciting, as it is only when the threads interlace to form the woven cloth that you really see the result. Inspired by the colours of faded hydrangea blooms, this cloth unifies different blues, pinks and greens in a surprising mix. Saori weaving always allows plenty of opportunity to explore […]
