Bespoke Yardage for Clothing.
I produce a range of bespoke yardage fabrics for Norwegian folk costume tailors, typically fabrics for dresses, waistcoats, aprons and different types of fodder fabric. Materials are cotton, wool, silk and linen. I weave all types of bindings except Jacquard, from simple two shaft to advanced damask.
Quality, Diligence, Experience
I have long experience in weaving yardage, and quality and diligence are of outmost importance for me. Deciding whether to order handwoven or not, take into consideration that a handwoven fabric can never be as regular as its factory woven counterpart. Handwovens will always bear traces of the hands of its maker in the form of small irregularities, making each yard of fabric special.
If you would like to commission a special fabric, get in touch. Minimum order is one meter, maximum about fifty meters. Please order well ahead in time, at least six months, as I have comittments to my regular customers. In addition, finding the right yarns for your fabric and test weaving, may require time.
If you would like to collaborate on a fabric or reconstruct an old fabric, if you need a protoype or if you simply need advice, have a look at the section Work With Me.
