Hand Weaving; Art of Producing Woven Textiles by Hand

Hand weaving is the art of producing woven textiles by hand. Weaving produces textiles by interlocking two yarns that lie perpendicular to one another and typically interlock, that is to say the interaction of the warp and the weft in a perpendicular relationship.

There are many different hand weaving traditions and techniques in the world originating from many different cultures. Some of the most basic elements of hand weaving involve threads/yarns. While traditional yarns made from animal and plant fibers are often used, there are also art projects that use unique materials to create woven works of art. By changing how the warp and weft threads interact in terms of going over and under one another, a weaver can create textiles with different properties.
