More questions!!
Kaye Crippen
57:24
are you planning to do a book on this? I would love to see some of the photos you showed as well as the older women and newer ones.
Marijke Bongers
57:49
By google soga brown I found this great website: asiantextilestudies.com about brown dyes that looks very interesting.
Kathy Hattori
57:50
Where are the yarns from? Is there an indigenous cotton source?
Kippian Inglis
58:16
What is the primary fiber used and where it is grown?
Marijke Bongers

Juliarose Triebes

Are there stories or mythologies attached to these patterns? You mentioned that many of them are regional to specific groups.
Norma Nuñez-Langlois
59:35
Are you involving the schools in teaching this craft as part of their curriculum?
Peg Schafer
01:00:25
Speaking of books, William is pretty funny in his book Little Bit One O'clock...
Archana Shastri
01:00:49
What are the modifications or adaptations/assimilations on the motifs and products observed by you over the last few decades?
Marijke Bongers
01:01:17
The way of learning sounds interesting in itself!
JOAN HARRISON
01:01:55
Perhaps organizing trips for wealthy youth from other places who go to learn and show excitement will encourage local youth...
Kaye Crippen
01:02:11
yes, I have Williams book and have read it.
Suzi Click
01:02:31
When I was in Sumba on a textiles tour watching them make indigo dye the local guide said only women made the dye and not men because it made them impotent. IS this true?
Peg Schafer
01:02:42
Will you be leading more trips to other islands to visit weavers and dyers?
Deb Black
01:02:54
Name of book?
Peg Schafer
01:03:54
Little Bit One O'clock is the name of the book.
Kaye Crippen
01:05:07
so the Chinese cotton coming into indonesia could be from the Ughar cotton in china?
Kaye Crippen
01:07:38
yes on wool. or it is sold so inexpensively to u.s. market. southern cal fibershed is working with wool.
Marijke Bongers
01:09:00
that sounds a lot like I have seen in a video about some Navaho weaving
Marijke Bongers
01:10:28
In the Netherlands and the Uk the same about wool, it made me work with wool 10 years ago, but now I am focussing on bast like linen.
Susan Ruddy
01:10:59

Mini Damwyk
01:26:32
I stayed for a week in a village in Flores where Thread of Life was working with. They would put the textiles they made on the bed or higher places (not on the ground) out of respect because they considered the textiles have spirit! So fascinating! 💙
Marijke Bongers
01:26:49

Mini Damwyk

Also, menstruated women would not go inside the room where they keep their indigo vat because they consider the room sacred.

Louise Yale
01:37:41
Wonderful !!
Mini Damwyk
01:37:49
Would you put more items on the website directly sourced from the weavers? I remember they would put their woven textiles out whenever tourists came and visit. With Covid that caused almost zero number of tourists, I wonder how they could sell their textiles and sustain their families.
Marijke Bongers
01:38:52
so may we use it in other ways? or would that be not respectful?
Betsy MacIsaac
01:39:35
what is the discount code
Kaye Crippen
01:39:54
what a great way to use what the beginners and less perfect textiles.. you may already do this but ask us to submit how we use the photos so weavers can see and encourage them to keep weaving and connect them to their users.
Kaye Crippen
01:40:44

Kaye Crippen
