the patterns formed by water’s movement are the inspiration for ‘Waterlines’

Most of Tania’s designs are very detailed, often using close tonal colours, and as such are extremely difficult to weave. Every square on the graph paper represents a knot that the weavers then produce by hand, knot by knot, requiring immense skill and patience.
As a starting point, we can quickly create a CAD render of any design in different colours to give our clients a visual idea. From here, once a more definite colour palette is specified, we can have the yarns dyed in the correct wool/silk proportions.
