Shadow Heddle Placemat by Chilewich100525-003
Inspired by Bauhaus textiles and debuting 100 years after the legendary design school was founded, Heddle explores the interaction of weaving and color. Areas of more graphic, floating yarns are juxtaposed with flat-woven fields of subtle stripes. Composed of approximately 50% more yarns than our signature Basketweave, this dynamic weave is the heaviest fabric we’ve ever made for the table. Heddle is named for an integral element of the loom on which it was developed. On a loom, each warp yarn is threaded through the eye of a heddle, similar to threading a sewing needle. Lifting and lowering the heddles in deliberate sequences creates different weave structures.
