Weaving stories & The Indigo Story

WEAVING STORIES & THE INDIGO STORY
Two sets of post cards on the cotton handloom weaving process.

I've now produced two sets of picture post cards related to the cotton handloom industry:
a) Weaving stories is a set of 6 cards that looks at some basic steps in the handloom weaving process
b) The Indigo story is also a set of 6 cards that journeys through the process of making and using natural indigo in cotton handlooms.


The pictures that make up the sets can be seen here.
