Traditional weaving of the Li people of China

This remarkable video of endangered traditional weaving came to me thanks to a post from Bonnie Tarses on Facebook. A must see for all my weaving friends. The ikat technique is very similar to the jaspé technique I witnessed in Guatemala.

    Anne, that was a beautiful piece on the state of weaving in China today. Thank you for sharing. Another instance where more may be lost than gained by opening the doors to Western civilization. Gotta love those backstrap looms. Gorgeous handwork. Makes me want to go back to China!
