  The weft floats form a pattern corresponding to a sequence of letters. It is thus possible to convey a personal message which can be read thanks to the code at the foot of the hanging, and at the same enjoyed as a visual motif.
Like so many good things, weaving is born and therefore read from bottom left upwards.

Every block of weft floats corresponds to a letter in the panel below. In this case the message is simply the name of the weave.

Like an ancient scribe, I am ready to transmit any new personalised message for you.
