Totsie Weaves Gallery


HI, I'm Totsie Marine, I began weaving Saori-inspired textiles in 2013 when I retired from my web design business. My first loom was a Japanese Saori. When I decided to learn 4 shaft weaving I got a LeClerc Artistat loom and then I got a Louet David loom. I now am enjoying an 8 shaft Macomber loom that is 45" wide which gives me more options than I have time to investigate but each project is full of interest and learning. I am now living in a small pueblo called Vilcabamba in the Southern Andes of Ecuador.

I have used wool and acrylic but I prefer to weave in cotton. Since there is not a good supply of commercial cotton yarn in my area I am growing cotton in my garden. I also buy raw cotton from other locals. The cotton is spun by several different women in this region which used to have a cotton industry. I also dye the threads to suit the project.

Here are a few photos of my favorite projects over the years...
