Process

Hand woven around a central ring, the inner part is made using a secure technique known as pairing. The body of the piece is made using a particularly complicated weaving technique called French Rand, and it has a beautifully crafted, crammed rod border. The final piece is a perfectly balanced and harmonious structure made from home-grown stripped white willow.
