burlap

Did I say yesterday that I tried a fistful of different fabrics and textures in the indigo vat?

I had two different burlaps (which is real wealth in the texture department); one from a used coffee sack, and this from the end of a bolt. The weave in this one is more even, and the effort I used to create a resist on it kind of worked. The coffee sack is very thick, and has twice as many threads in each direction. The resist process did not work well on the coffee sack.

I rather like this one though – the emphasis on the weave directed the stitching.
