Storytelling

The sample is woven on a dobby handloom using beads to create the leno effect. Leno weave creates an open transparent and yet strong construction. In warp is used Rubco yarn which is a PE-core coated with polyurethan. In weft is used a red robe yarn with a round and firm profile that emphasizes the relief structure of the honeycomb.
