When we weave, we are working the hands and the brain, with them, we reinforce our creativity, we improve the control of our hands and we have the satisfaction of a job well done.
As William Morris believed, a hand-made work produces pleasure and satisfaction for those who create it, while mechanized work is repetitive and blocks any creative freedom. And maybe, we’re not so far from that time …
In this world as globalized, as fast and as digital as ours, it is good to disconnect from time to time and recover what we have left along the way, those skills that are still in our hands and that the modern world despises.
When we make small movements, with hands, fingers, wrists … we are using the motor functions that we call fine and that are taken for granted, as if they were instinctive, of birth, and that we all know from the first day.

And it is through these three words that we have developed our tools.
