What is SAORI Weaving?

SAORI- Explore your Natural Creativity through Free Weaving

SAORI is unique and totally different from other traditional styles of hand weaving.  In traditional hand weaving, weavers highly value the regularity and cleanness of the woven cloth: if there is an irregular pattern or thread, it is considered a “mistake” or “flaw”.  In SAORI, on the other hand, we put more importance on free expression, because hand weaving is different from machine weaving.
