Thread — protein or cellulose fibers modified as a tool for clothing, personal adornment, or utility — is one of the few universal elements found in every known cultural record throughout all of time. It is deeply a part of what makes us human. Entire civilizations have risen around it. It is woven into the very stories that tell us how we came to be. As cultures evolve, adapt, and exchange, so too do their methods. It may be a universal that ties us all together, but everywhere the expression and utility of it is unique.
I am an explorer, and this is my space for cataloging what I learn from the people I meet, with plenty of my own experimentation thrown in. It is a place for thoughts and learning, trial and error, and creation. I’m happy to share it and I hope that it inspires other explorers to learn always, everywhere.
