French weaving, bespoke scarf, handwoven textile

The best introduction to Colette Boulet comes via a mesmerizing video on her website. It shows weaving as a dance, a science, and a meditation. From her artist statement:

I make discoveries by working with fibre through touch, repetition, rhythm, appearance and aroma. When weaving, rhythm is created by the repetition of motif, beating, passing the shuttle and the pedal pattern. My work is embedded in the realm of the senses, such as the aroma of natural fibres and the sustained use of touch when working with different fibre types and textures.
