"Weaving Textiles That Shape Themselves" sounds like a contradiction in terms, but this book sets out to show how textiles can do precisely that: shape themselves.
Weaving with high-twist yarns and contrasting materials can create fabrics with lively textures and elastic properties.
Although these fabrics are flat on the loom, they are transformed by washing - water releases the energy of the different yarns and the fabrics 'organize themselves' into crinkled or pleated textures.
