Cotton magic

This is what happens when you challenge a young talented design student. We asked Pooja Rajendran to come out with something creative using our mercerized cotton 20/2 yarns using the Ashford Jack loom. Incidentally, she had never worked on a treadle loom earlier. As a student she was used to show her creative side in a small 10” wide swatch but when she got an opportunity to work on the Jack loom, she went all the 38” of the loom! With a project using extra warp, she made a huge warp with 2400 ends! Man, she was on a roll weaving away to glory. No wonder the fabric looks as happy as she is!
