Your cloth is beautiful. I only wish I could touch it to feel the softness.
Your post reminded me of when I used to work in potteries. We ran a workshop and invited a Columbian pottery to lead a session and she decided to make small ocarina flutes shaped like animals. The people in the workshop were a mixture of potters, non potters and children.
She showed us how she made the animal flutes. The heads were made hollow. The potters said but if you do that it will explode in the kiln. She said it's not a problem..
She had different kinds of clay which had varying shrinkage rates from 13 to 25%. She enclosed one type of clay within another which had a higher shrinkage rate meaning as it fired it would shrink more than the other clay section and so squeeze it and break itself or the other section depending which was stronger. The potters said but it will break. She said it's not a problem.
She embedded clay shapes and joined pieces not as a standard potter would using scoring, slip and creation of suction but by adding tiny clay nails to the shape and nail holes on the other pieces and putting them together. The potters said but but but...... She said it's not a problem.
When the pieces fired .... This is a true story... All the ocarinas made by experienced potters (who made them believing the Columbian potter was crazy/stupid/wrong, it will never work) exploded in the kiln. All the other ones, made by people who just followed the instructions and did so without question, came out of the kiln in one piece. They didn't put limitations on their work or put obstacles in their paths.
The only people losing out in the weaving situation are the people who say it can't be done. Exploring the world and how to do things as a child would is far more rewarding and a far richer world to live in.
