These are the pictures taken for the exhibition in Vichte.
The photographer was Nele van Canneyt,
her 'assignment' was portraying 5 people and their own scarf.
I wasn't present at the photoshoots but I like
how she has captured everyone in their own personal way
and how she shows the textiles in a totally different style than mine.
Because of budget reasons I never worked with a photographer before,
maybe something to think about in the future...
Hope you like the pictures as much as I do!
And now back to my loom!

The cloth for every garment is handwoven in her London weaving cottage on a traditional floor loom. Yarn of exceptional quality is handspun in Japan,
where it is made in small quantities and naturally dyed.
Once the cloth is woven, garments are cut and hand stitched by a single tailor.
No two garments are alike. Textiles and garments are made specially with the intended store in mind. Collections are on a non-seasonal, ongoing basis,
and delivered in small quantites throughout the year.
Making in this form, from thread to cloth to garment, demands devotion and patience.
Amy Revier values longevity, simplicity, evidence of the hand, a love of labour, and tradition.
Each garment is meant to reflect the plain beauty of well made things.
The weaving cottage is based in London, UK.
Garments are currently stocked in London at Dover Street Market & Hostem.
In addition, pieces from the archive & custom garments may be ordered directly from the studio workspace."

Still busy with designing the warp, that always takes some time,
but in my way of working, it's a really important part.
It took me a while to get back to my everlasting scarfproject,
but when the need isn't there,
I just need to respect a pause.
But today I got that itchy feeling... :-)
On my new loom there's a new project, not a scarf,
and something for me this time.
Still busy with weaving samples, so more about it later.
I'm just getting to know my Arm Patronic loom,
so it's not a complex type of fabric.
Weaving with a dobby loom is completely new to me,
but it's really my cup of tea...
It still feels strange I need electricity for weaving! :-)
Longing for the christmas vacation.
Quite some weaving plans...
