Every day on my weaving tour of Japan and the Philippines I will repost all of my InstaGram posts here on my blog. I hope you enjoy my adventures.

Again pina (pineapple fiber) was being woven. Here it is only in the weft. The warp is silk because it is stronger which makes it easier to weave because the silk threads don't break as often. You can recognize the combination of pina and silk because the irregular lines go only one direction (horizontally or in the weft direction).
