What is weaving?
Weaving is the crossing of threads, of warp and welt.
Hand weaving is best performed on a loom.
The weaving mill has been initiated by Sytze Roos.
He has e.g. specialized in damask weaving in Sweden, in computer-controlled weaving in Switzerland, in artistic weaving in Copenhagen, working on a power loom in Finland and lateron trained as a weaving teachter in Oslo. For the past 15 years he has mainly worked on his own productions, weaving some 450 meters a year.
