World Peace Forum 2006

Thank you to everyone who contributed and participated in Weaving a Banner for Peace in 2006!

This first Peace Banner, woven in SAORI style, has many stories to it. Over 100 people, women, men and children, from all over the world have added their own weaving with wishes, thoughts, dreams or prayers for peace to it.

SAORI Peace Weave – Hiroshima, Japan

Each year since 2007, Hiroshima, Japan has invited people to submit SAORI woven banners for Peace to be displayed in an exhibit.  Each year (except 2020 and 2021 due to Covid), SAORI Salt Spring has sent a banner to be part of this exhibit.  The majority of the banners have been woven by community – adding threads and thoughts of peace.
