I know the effect I want to get, but don’t know how the colours will work, whether I want one colour for the background or a ‘plaid’ with all the warp colours or other colours on hand

I don’t know if I’ll be able to sneak in some pieces with just one weft. I know I want to do a large piece with some inlay wefts in bright contrasting colours, and some simple mats. I want to weave the symbols right side up and upside down. I need to know which patterns I want for borders. I’m putting on a really long warp in hopes of getting loads of sampling and then assembling something really special. Wish me luck!

History of Stripes: From fashion to food packaging, the humble stripe is one pattern with timeless appeal

Keywords: home, lifestyle

Few patterns have enjoyed such longstanding, universal appeal as the iconic stripe. Yet, despite its seemingly modest design, this linear shape has been a catalyst for social outrage as well as a symbol of emancipation and acceptance. From the medieval period up to modern day, there’s a rich history that can be gleaned from reading between these ever-changing lines.
