ADVANTAGES

The best weavers are recognizable by the borders they weave. Tradition dictates a certain technique for the weave, identifiable in the amount of thread counts, a specific design, and orientation of the weave. In essence, the weaver knows and understands the technique. This refined « language » and code help distinguish the novices from the skillful artisans. The newcomers don’t know.

Besides its telltale function to identify the skilled, the border also has a functional purpose. When a shawl is worn, the edges are the first to deteriorate. Hence, the borders are not just about design or aesthetics, it is also about function.

"Certain weavers, they just want to sell. They don’t even think about tradition and what our forefathers did."
