Material is a means of communication- Anni Albers
We bring a wide range of weaving looms including modern Table top looms and state-of-the-art computerised Dobby hand looms & computerised jacquard hand looms from Ashford Handicrafts, New Zealand (www.ashford.co.nz), AVL Looms USA (www.avlusa.com ) & Saori Global Japan (www.saoriglobal.com/home)
The Ashford fibre preparatory tools like Carders and Ashford Spinning wheels provide the designers unrestricted freedom for experimentation.
Imagine your design studio where you can blend fibres - materials like cottons, wools, silk, angora, metallics…and colours of your choice; spin a few yards of fancy art yarns quickly and knit/ weave/ embellish the garment… all in a matter of few hours. Can it get any better?!
You can use these tools for upcycling materials too like used denims, silk sarees, paper, polythene, whatever and create lovely art yarns for weaving or knitting.
Integrate that with fibre felting tools and we are talking real freedom, nah a fantasy world!
