In SAORI: Self Innovation Through Free Weaving Misao describes both her evolution as a weaver and the philosophy she developed that sets Saori apart from conventional weaving. In Saori we break with “conventional, patterned thinking which values uniformity” and perfection, and strive instead to let the creative expression of our true selves shine and guide our work. Misao felt that we shouldn’t aspire to create like machines, but rather, celebrate our humanness in its perfect imperfection.
At Wimberley Valley Saori, we aspire to express this free-spirited weaving with color, texture and irregularity in our woven cloth.
