Weaving by hand is a “slowmade” product. There are many hours that go into planning, warping and threading a loom before something is actually woven. Because weavers use high quality materials to make their handwovens pricing may differ from what you would expect in a local store or mall. A handwoven item will often last 10-15 or more times than an item that has been mass produced. Purchasing handwoven goods helps to preserve the art of handweaving for future generations.
One the loom with the Draft on the floor, there were many bobbins in play.
