About Wa Handweaving
Each scarf is originally handwoven by the skilful Wa ladies living in the remotest areas of Yunnan Province, in Southwest China, where their culture has flourished independently of the rest of China. The scarves are handwoven with a very old technique involving the use of a backstrap loom. This rudimentary consists of two bars, one fixed and the other attached to the weaver with a backstrap, to operate the cotton or linen threads by moving the body accordingly. The weaver leans back to stretch the warp and with the use of a shed roll encases the weft through the string heddles, raising them by loosening the tension. The ultimately fashionable chequered patterns are typical of the Wa traditional clothing.
