I began the process with a photo (this one taken by Lee Jeffries). I then assigned weave structures to each shade of the photo with design software 'Pointcarre'. She was then handwoven on a jacquard loom producing a one-of-a-kind tapestry. If interested in purchasing this piece please contact me.
This handwoven piece is currently on my loom in process. The black fiber is cotton with the gold fiber is bamboo.
Check out this great video. 27 seconds of time lapse weaving.

Tonya in New Hampshire wrote "I purchased a scarf a few years ago, but I have been increasingly amazed by Avanzato's jacquard weaving. As a person who admires art from afar, his work speaks to me, so I am now the proud owner of a beautiful piece of woven art for my wall"!
I enjoy sitting at my mulit shaft loom introducing , explaining and promoting hand weaving to the patrons who visit.
Each item is created one at a time by hand,
producing a unique item,
resulting in apparel that reflects your personality.
The studio is smoke and pet free.
I have a continuing relationship with weaving. This relationship spans 20 years and involves multi shaft and jacquard looms .
The process of taking a single thread (weft) and moving it over or under a single or group of threads (warp) producing cloth which protects, warms, adorns, and inspires is ancient as well as a modern experience.
As I design and weave, I use pattern and detail to enhance color and texture with fibers of silk, wool, cotton and rayon producing unique items of art.
