Warp is silk and cashmere in mid/darkish purple, weft is cashmere in blue-y yellow-green; the piece produces that thing called "shot effect". Can someone please explain to me how "shot effect" occurs? At one point I heard it was the same value/different hues, but now I don't think so, at least not in this case. Alternatively, do you know how to photograph it effectively?
At the moment, if you google "textile, shot" or "shot effect", you come to articles about textile workers in Pakistan getting shot during pay disputes. Which reminds me, about a month ago I received an email from Peshawar, which i thought was junk mail, but on further reading, I discovered a mill/workshop owner found my web site, and offered to have his people weave my "company's products" for a very cheap price. Yeah, right.
