The Norwegian word “Krokbragd” translates as “crooked path”. It is a weft-faced weaving technique using thick weft yarns so you see only the weft in the fabric and not the warp. This was popular during the 18th and 19th centuries in Norway when people sought thicker fabric that provided warmth and used it as using it as blankets, bed covers and as rugs & wall hangings
This technique offers endless design possibilities, by just varying the placement of weft colours. You can form interesting motifs by grouping weft colours together- more like building blocks. The fabric is dense and compact being suitable for coasters, rugs, wall hangings and more.
