Extant Textile Inspiration: 
Notes: 

After studying an extant piece of taquete at the Cloth Workers Centre. I wanted to redact the draft and weave my own version of this monochrome textile. In order to test my draft, I had to weave the textile. I wove a bag for myself and wanted to weave smaller pieces that could be given away as thank  you gifts or as tokens to people who really inspired me. So far, I have woven and given away 6 as thank yous, plus one for my husband and son.

The original textile is as follows:

Akhmîm, Qau-el-Kebir, near Asyut, Egypt, 350-450

Weft Faced Compound Tabby 1 pattern:1 binding end

Sett I have not yet estimated the sett

PPI: estimated at 35-36

Monochrome design
