Tablet Weaving by Stacy Schlutsmeyer

For the 2019 conference of the Braid Society in Iga, Japan, all participants were invited to contribute a piece to be exhibited. I made this band as my entry. It is tablet woven using the method developed on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. The pattern is my own design, and depicts a seed with orderly roots reaching down, and the more chaotic flowering plant above. It was woven in 10\2 cotton with 68 cards.
