I loved seeing this gentleman at work this past spring at ISD during World Cultural Month and had the opportunity to chat with him, courtesy of a translator. He’s been weaving for 60 years. He is 75 years old. If you look closely at the pictures, you might be able to see that the loom is made from very old materials. I’m amazed it works as well as it does. I would definitely describe it as precariously put together. He needs to use his feet as well as his hands to make the whole thing work. The waft strings extend many feet away from the loom and were held by a large rock and log in place. His shirt was threadbare, strangely ironic. He made placemats and table runners. The first picture is of his finished work.
