I spend a lot of time researching different things that interest me. (I believe that a love of learning is one of the most important skills that a person can acquire.) So for today’s learning adventure I decided to focus on weaving, looms, and fibers. While on that journey, I found the online portal of HandEye Magazine. It highlights creative efforts of our global community. It offers an anthropological view of how these creative endeavours affect and are affected by economies, pogroms, and trends (at least in the few articles I read.) I decided to share this article because it touched on tradition, government prohibition, bravery in reestablishing a banned handicraft, and the need to seek out “heirloom” cottons plants. I hope you enjoy the article and learn something new.
