Woven Lotus Fibres



Not handspun as far as I can tell, but still interesting.  "Weaving a Rare Fabric from the Lotus Plant," Wall Street Journal, 11/3/2010

If you watch the video embedded on the blog page, unfortunately the format clips off the far right side of the picture.  You might want to follow the link and view the video on the host site.

Note, this fabric is produced in Burma (Myanmar), a country which is under trade sanctions by Canada.
