Back in January, Karen Lohn contacted me to ask permission to use some photos of SAORI weaving for a book that she was working on called “Peace Fibres – Stitching a Soulful World“.
These pictures are of weaving a Peace Banner and another of a finished banner. I said “YES – that would be great!”
The book is about fibres and their use in many cultures and in many ways. I felt that SAORI fit in beautifully with her ideas:
There is great yearning for a world community of peace.
There is yearning for personal peace as well.
What if simple fibres offer a great unifying avenue for developing harmonious relationship to self, to others, and to the larger world community and all of its inhabitants?
The book was published this summer and I received a copy of it. It is a beautiful book, full of stories, ideas and projects. Here is the page with SAORI weaving on it as part of the introduction to the book (shown with permission):
Worth checking out.
The pages … offer images of fibre creations from six continents, verification of our commonality as human beings and our interdependence with the natural world.
