Altar Linen

This was a huge project – it take months to create the design and transfer it to the loom’s program.  I tried to take the design on the title on the floor that borders the altar and
bring it up to the cloth and border a central piece.  
The linen takes time since there are many steps including a sample piece to make sure the threads are in order.  The threading of the loom, the weaving, the wet finishing and the sewing together the final piece.
The yarn, Tencel, is an eco friendly yarn make of wood pulp.  It is biodegradable and
man made.
The design for the borders were taken from the floor title that borders the altar. 

This is the floor tile that borders the altar.

The diamond design was recreated on the computer to serve as a border to the center piece of cloth. 

Warping the loom take time

Finally the loom is ready!

Each thread is placed according to the pattern

The front of the loom – Let the weaving begin!

 The next step is to sample, sample, sample until finally there is the right design, set and width on the computer and on the loom.
