Textile Design - Erik

August 30, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Erik is a curtain designer who loves textiles and texture. In this project, he played with a fine tissue linen fabric by stripping 2 dozen weft threads, cross-hatching the warp, and re-weaving a single warp thread. We love how this pattern is reminiscent of old-fashioned faggoting, with a dose of helix keeping it moderne. This technique would be beautiful as a bodice accent, or edging of a full skirt.
