Highlighting the simple process of the making of colour, this project aimed to explore the intricacies in the creation of a coloured cloth via weaving techniques. Through the alteration and manipulation of colour quantities through the weft of a jacquard loom, the subtle differences in the final cloth’s sections are highlighted by the delicate shifts in the use of thread.

The project observed the whole process; from the dying of yarns to the blending and subtraction of colour through the yarns woven through the warp. From a distance, a beautiful gradation in colour can be seen in the fabric, but on close up inspection, a network of finely interwoven colour can be seen. The selvage of the fabric has been left to act as a code; an understanding of what has constructed this piece.

The concept is currently being developed into a collection of throws to be made available for the home.
