Woven Belt

Monday, February 26, 2007

I wove this belt last fall. It was my first attempt at using the Taaniko method of loomless weaving as practiced by the Maori of New Zealand. I had fun selecting shells for the finished look.

The necklace I promised to show Cat Women sooooon also includes Taaniko weaving.

Very very cool. Ever try doing batik?
I love that. I never tried the process. I brought home a dozen frocks & skorts when I was in Indonesia. My first purchase was in Australia back in 2000. They have vendors who sell batik at street markets as Indonesia is only a hop-skip away.

No, never tried batik but it looks fun. I've got a few skirts myself with Indonesian print.

Thanks for the nice words about the belt. Makes my day....!
