Re­turn of the soumak

“I just love the colour­ful kitsch style of this weav­ing, with its fes­tive colours and soft tex­tures. I’m a big fan of us­ing thick chunky rov­ing as it cre­ates tex­ture and adds flu ness to the de­sign. Rov­ing is amaz­ing to work with and very flex­i­ble, it also comes in all sorts of colours. The lay­er­ing of the fringe at the bot­tom al­lows for blocks of colours to hang from the wo­ven sec­tion at var­i­ous lengths and thick­nesses, and us­ing the gold rib­bon brings in an­other tex­ture and an in­ter­est­ing colour con­trast. My weav­ing will be tak­ing pride of place in my bed­room!”
