Double weave is a double layer of fabric which intersects and changes position from the back to the face layer and vice versa to create the image.

It takes about a week to do the design and check it for errors, a week to dye all the yarns to the colours I want and a week to get it on the loom and weave it.
Its a wonderful feeling as you wind the hanging off the cloth beam when you see the whole design transformed from a paper image to cloth
