A Set of Eight Weaving Samples: Cut Colored Cotton
mid twentieth century
longest sample: 39" x 9", 99 cm x 23 cm
average size of others: 32" x 4 1/2", 81 cm x 11.5 cm
This is a collection of eight different pieces of woven cotton, seven of which show numbered tags which indicate that this was most likely used as sampler from a weaving studio.
Each of the cotton fragments is double the length shown here, with the exception of the long, green plaid fragment. Each is woven with beautiful texture and color and each is fairly heavyweight.
This will make a beautiful palette for design projects or it is a fantastic inspiration for a textile designer.
