Lately, I am a little ardent in making weaving pattern with any of my feasible craft materials. Besides the entrelac knitting pattern which I have made into a messenger bag, the basket weave blanket, woven rag rug and basket weaving; this time I am making weave fabric – Intrecciato with light weight denim salvaged from my old pair of denim overalls. [Intrecciato means interlace / braided / weave in Italian]
Maybe you are not a fan of Bottega Veneta, but I am sure you have seen this signature woven texture in handbags and purses made popular since early of the millennium. The designer and developer of the luxury artisan leather goods, Bottega Veneta, called it Intrecciato Weave and it remains the signature of its brand.
This is the tutorial on how to weave fabric (lightweight denim/cotton) strips which I have applied it on the water bottle holder. If you are interested in the water bottle holder pattern, it will be on the next tutorial. There are several ways to weave fabric strips and this tutorial is something for a neat look, though you need to invest some time in preparing the strips, it is worth the time!!! I might have another fabric weaving tutorial coming the way as I am testing out a different technique, wish me luck to get it done successfully so I can share the method with you 🙂
Hope you will enjoy making this Bottega Veneta inspired Intrecciato Weave by using quilting weight cotton or lightweight denim.
