Rigg Countrylife Backpack
Rigg Countrylife fabric (ref: 2005 Rigg pond life) was created in 2005 as one of 3 trial ‘novelty’ fabrics. The aim of this trial was to develop a coloured tapestry fabric to successfully compete against the imported offers from Flemish weavers.
The tapestry warp settings and complex weaves enabled numerous colourways to be woven ‘off’ the same warp. The designers used the same designs but used a technique called stepping to use different warp colours on the face.
Fabric composition: a mix of cotton, viscose & polyester.
