The collection of hand-woven shawls/covers consists of 7 objects. This project is a contemporary variation on large, checked scarves women used to wrap themselves in the past.
The shawls were created on a harness loom using the deflected doubleweave technique, practically unknown in Poland. They are double-sided – the wearer decides which variant of the pattern she/he wants to highlight.
The yarn is merino wool with excellent thermoregulatory properties – light, warm, breathable and at the same time very soft and nice to touch. The individual colour combinations are unique – in the spirit of less waste, high quality end-of-series stock yarns from Italian manufacturers were used in the design.
The fabrics work well as personal items, they can be a scarf around the neck, cover the back or serve as a blanket. They are equally well suited as decorative objects in an interior, pleasing the eye of the beholder with their graphic form, contrasting colours and meticulous handcraftsmanship.
