Windows to the Past

With its spaced warp and weft, this fabric references the windows of the weavers’ garrets, once numerous in the industrial areas of Cheshire. These rooms occupied the top storey so as to receive the best light available to weave by. Although this piece was heavily felted in its finishing, the fine yarns retain a soft, whispy feel imparting a dreamlike quality to the final fabric. Windows to the Past can be viewed from either side, looking not only to the past, but also to the future. It would make a stunning cobweb layer over a skirt or dress.
