Sketch of my final project
I would like to make Circular Loom for weaving Nanduti. Ñandutí is a traditional Paraguayan embroidered lace, like fabrics woven on the threads which go to and fro across the circular. therefore it could make using circular loom. the existing a circular loom is like fig. 1. I would like to add three functions to it.
1. Circular Heddles
Typical looms have more than two heddles to make the shed. the shed is the temporary separation between upper and lower warp yarns through which the wefts is woven. The shed is created to make it easy to interlace the weft into the warp and thus create woven fabric. I would like to make circular heddles for circular loom.
2. Transferring structures to Umbrella
When the weaving finish, cloths need to strath and dry . I thought of a idea that cloths are transfer to Umbrella, by forking its bones. Japanese Umbrellas have more bones than another contories.
3. pattern indicator lights
weaving cloth is too big to become more difficult to weave delicate patterns. I thought that circular image transform to rectangular pattern. LED light indicate weaving pattern for each layer.
