A while back Christine from Bandweberei Kafka, an old weaving mill dating back to
1898 asked me if I could imagine to turn some of my LITTLE BRITAIN designs into a limited edition of
woven ribbons. I could´nt hardly believe my luck, my designs woven on museal Jaquard looms.
OF COURSE I COULD, of course I wanted!
Below is a short slideshow to share with you the process, from the very start, making the design by cutting papers,
converting it into a point-paper-design, producing card-to-tape converters,
assembling the more than 100 years old weaving looms with countless small thread spools
and after a lot of clattering and rattling recieving the most beautiful woven ribbons.
Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.
I made 3 different ribbon desings, a Grenadier, a red telephone box and the London Bus.
The first 2 will be available soon, the London Bus will be following later.
The selling of the ribbons starts with this event:
ROSENFEST at Bandweberei Kafka on Saturday, June 25th 2011, 11.00 am
a market with nice handmade little things, something tasty and a look around in the old weaving mill.I will be there with a small stall as well.
Later on the ribbons will be available exclusively in my webshop and at Bandweberei Kafka.
If you are in the area, I´d be happy to meet you on Saturday.
This is the address where the Rosenfest takes place
I´d like to share my joy with you and celebrate the arrival of the ribbons with a little
GIVE AWAY: YOU CAN WIN 2 METERS GRENADIER RIBBON
wrapped around a spooldoll, made by me.
All you have to do is to leave a comment and let me know what you would use the ribbon for if you would win.
The winner will be drawn Tuesday, 28th June.
