I create my mechanical woven fabrics from scratch with the threads forming the fabric, using a mechanical loom, warping machine, spool machine and a punch cards puncher. Samples are first made in my hand loom and after I have designed the pattern I weave the fabric in my mechanical shuttle loom from the 1950’s. Cast Iron, leather, mechanic, punched card. The shuttle beats rhythmically back and forth, making a strong long-lasting fabric with strong selvedges.
My handwoven garments are made in my hand loom.
For shirt and shirt dresses I use GOTS-certified organic cotton fabrics and also sometimes so called left-over or dead-stock fabric from other clothing company’s (over)production.
