Paper Yarn becomes a basket with meaning

Remember the paper yarn from the last post? I spun it, and wove it into the lid of my basket.
I used commercial paper yarn for the warp, and some weft.  All of the blue weft is handspun, from Thai unryu, Habu paper yarn, and calligraphy/sumie paper.  Some of it is dyed.  I wanted to use up some of the bits and pieces from my practice papers, and this is the result.
The bottom part is perigord weave, and the blue is twining.

  1. I'm catching up on your posts and will obviously get my wish to see what beauties you make with this new paper yarn. The lid is fantastic. What wonderful intentions lie within this piece...
