Redesigning "Jinboari"

 

This piece was chosen to be displayed at Rhode Island School of Design Museum for 8-month long exhibition.

Panels were woven as a tight gauze over the illustrated layer, cut around the edges, then coated with fabric stiffener. The ribbons were sewed onto after to replicate the belt of a Jinboari robe

Process

Taking the structural forms and shapes from the "Jinboari" pattern and creating an artwork on Photoshop and cleaned on NedGraphics in order to assign weaves into colors. 

Several woven trials experimenting with various weft sequencing  in  material, size, and color

Final design being woven on the industrial Jacquard loom
