The Dosa website is highly informative! A friend of mine also sent me photos of her store and apparently she has tables filled with info about natural dyes and fabrics.

Hi Cathy, it's great to see you here. I think I would be speechless at a dinner party with those two amazing artists. You honor me just by putting me in the same sentence. Thank you.
(and for my readers, Cathy is a genius at sewing with Japanese pattern books, and does beautiful shibori and katazome herself!).

Here is a dinner party I want to be a fly on the wall for--you, Rowland Ricketts and Yoshiko Wada discussing slow cloth. Or maybe you could just write an article somewhere so we can all read it?

By the way, I am enjoying your blog and some of the new links you are helping me discover, Thank YOU!

10 Qualities of Slow Cloth, by Elaine Lipson

  • I defined Slow Cloth several years ago on this blog. Read the original post at http://lainie.typepad.com/redthread/2008/01/this-must-be-th-1.html. (Copyright Elaine Lipson 2007-2011; all rights reserved).
  • Joy
    Slow Cloth has the possibility of joy in the process. In other words, the journey matters as much as the destination.
  • Contemplation
    Slow Cloth offers the quality of meditation or contemplation in the process.
  • Skill
    Slow Cloth involves skill and has the possibility of mastery.
  • Diversity
    Slow Cloth acknowledges the rich diversity and multicultural history of textile art.
  • Teaching
    Slow Cloth honors its teachers and lineage even in its most contemporary expressions.
  • Materials
    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
  • Expression
    Slow Cloth is expressive of individuals and/or cultures. The human creative force is reflected and evident in the work.
