Recently Sue dug out her draft and started weaving more of these towels. No pile, you understand, but with the basic structure that you can see in the ends of the original towel. The towels have a label that says they were woven in Calcutta - the pile suggests a factory weave. We joked that maybe Sue should return to see if she could find the factory to see how they manage the pile. Would the factory still be there we wondered.
Sue thinks that the original towel has alternating colors in the warp - which would be fun to try.
I know you are dying to see the draft that Sue figured out. Hours went into this relatively simple draft, but I'm not sure I've seen it elsewhere.
Here are the towels recently woven by Sue in colorful cottons to help her remember childhood memories in Calcutta.
