Gallery 17a - Marijke van Epen

The Sa'dan Toraja band with S-shapes, is an example from one of the motifs in the second chapter of my book Special Tablet Weaves*.

My bag after the original Mamasa Toraja bag from Sulawesi. This bag is also featured in my book.

I wove this Snartemo band many years ago. The three original motifs at the beginning of the band were my inspiration. It took me three weeks to plan, weave and to make the weaving drafts as well. At the end of that period I understood the possibilities of the four color float weaves quite well. This one is in cotton 16/2. The historic band was in wool.

Marijke's books can be found at Linda Hendrickson's web site.
