Techniques

I have been learning to weave Kushutara in Bhutan, and I share what I have learned in the posts on the techniques of weaving kushutara, sapma & thrima, and on the Bhutanese backstrap loom and warp preparation.

Although I have not learned to weave aikapur, I have spent hours weaving next to those who weave it, and I share my observations in posts about aikapur supplementary warp and supplementary weft techniques.

In my travels across Bhutan I have also seen other Bhutanese looms and yathra weaving.

There are posts on Kutchi Techniques,Lao Techniques and Vietnamese Techniques, and eventually I will also add posts about techniques of textile production from other countries I have visited.
