I've titled the above piece "Nara Sarashi" because that's what this type of woven hemp is called in Japan. Originally it was used mainly as clothes of priests. Later in history it came to be used for samurai's old ceremonial dress and unlined kimono in summer. Now it is used to make tea cloth, shop curtains and centerpieces. At least thats the information that came with the fabric.

This week I'll be making the six hour drive to Portland for the SAQA conference. I'm looking forward to the conference, the drive there and then back home again next Monday, not so much.
