Woven with a patchwork of different red yarns tracking journeys through space and time. The colour red has power, it is the colour of life and death and in many cultures is used to ward off bad luck, often embroidered round the neck on clothes and tied round wrists as protection on journeys,
A red thread travelling across a warp, under and over, back and forth marking the length of the cloth with its protective powers.
