Collection: Myra R. Young Collection
Object Id Number: 86.4.140
Object Name: Placemat
Date Item Created: 1966
Description: Placemat - Fifteen green ovals/lozenges on medium blue/purple background. Linen. Twill threading, but hand picked up; plain weave. Warp is light and dark blue linen in pairs. Weft is red-violet linen. Pattern weft is 2 threads, yellow and green singles. Hemmed.
Weave analysis: Dark and light blue are randomly threaded in pairs in separate heddles (because they lie parallel and not twisted). Draft could be twill with 2 threads side by side (1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4,) as a possible threading. Woven in a duKagang appearance, lifting one shaft for the inlay which is hand picked-up in the design, with tabby.
