Traditionally, hand-weaving was once widely practiced in many cultures, however today most of the weaving process is automated and carried out by machines in large factories. The knowledge behind the process of how a piece of fabric is woven is a complete mystery to most individuals.
Many people don't realize exactly how time consuming and precise the craft of hand-weaving is and, therefore, don't fully appreciate its worth. I think it is important for people to grasp how a woven project is created from start to finish.
I hope after you see all of the care and effort involved in hand-weaving you will have a better appreciation of the skill involved and the real value of my finely crafted woven articles.
