Narrow Weaver
Ribbons were one of my first collections and I have never grown out of them. Although I do not sport them in my pigtails anymore, I use them for colour inspiration, making a package special, tying a placecard on a napkin, or have them simply because they’re beautiful. A narrow weaver was tasked with the creation of narrow cloth or goods, so in essence, ribbons were their life. Imagine a life filled with ribbons! You’d assume that these arcane traders would have dainty fingers and very sharp vision to insure that every stitch fell exactly where needed. And while you can imagine that it was very finicky work, the world of possibility wrapping in grosgrain, picot edge, jacquard and more, as well as the spectrum of colours is just the sort of creative pursuit that I could live happily with.
