Wedge Weave - Makers' Exclusive Drawstring Project Bag
Made of sturdy and washable suede-like polyester, this drawstring bag is made entirely on our premises.
Full of colorful zigs and zags, this box bottom drawstring bag offers stylish storage for your WIP. This bag features a photographic print of a sample of Wedge Weave (or pulled warp) created with a combination of colorful yarns, including many dyed with natural materials such as onion skin and madder. This method of weaving was used by the Navajo (Diné) from about 1875 to about 1900. The technique produces graphic angular lines, but also creates a scalloped edge. The curvy edge was seen as an indicator of poor quality, so the technique was abandoned for more traditional methods.
