We had a designer orientation information session where we presented garments made with Saori weavings. It is quite a different process constructing garments with Saori weaving materials vs. machine made fabrics. Thank you fellow Saori weaver Juliet Martin for speaking about the philosophy of Wabi Sabi and Saori weaving to our fellow designer friends, as well as showing examples of your work. Our small paper origami garment making demos were a tool to show others ways of making garments using minimal waste. We hope it was helpful for the designers to create their pieces for the show in April! Stay tuned for more details.
