The right textiles bring character, comfort and style to a space. This CEU gives designers an in-depth understanding about handwoven textile processes, natural fibers and their benefits, specifying for success, and treatments/finishes for natural fibers.

We will also touch upon Custom Weaving and understanding rub counts.

Virtual Studio Tour Bonus: Designers will also get a virtual studio tour to see handloom weaving in action and learn about dye-lots, weave constructions, yarns and see numerous samples. We will conduct a Q/A in the end to address common concerns and questions. Every designer will receive an informative booklet and memos of their choice.
