Each individual warp thread lifts independently of others according to the pattern on the perforated cards πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ #howitsdone #howitsmade #handcrafted #handcraft #loom #handweaving #crafts #nepal #kathmamdu #heritage #textiles #textiledesign #handwoven #weaving #thread #shopsmall #fairtrade

  • Happy #textile #Tuesday! We're celebrating the ancient #tradition of hand #block printing that dates all the way back to the 12th century and is one of the oldest techniques used for textile production. The blocks themselves are works of art as each one is hand carved! The block pictured dates back to the 1900s!
