Thought you might be interested to see how we created our fabric Wow.
1. This is the metallic faux leather yarn that we found at a mill that we work with in Italy.
2. Rather than ask the mill to set up a loom to weave samples for us, we decided to do some in-house hand weaving. This was much faster and much cheaper! This is Lauren using her very advanced weaving skills.
3. We created a loom on a cardboard box (FedEx box pulled out of the trash) by wrapping the warp yarns around the box. Then we wove with the faux leather metallic yarn in the weft direction.
4. Here is a close up of the front and back of the FedEx box. We sent the handwoven samples to the mill to illustrate the construction and colors that we wanted.
5. Here is the final product, our fabric Wow!!
