The article cites several textile works of various artists. For Kimono 2, artist Barbara Danneman wove a canvas in 20/2 commercially dyed brown cotton, with a woven-in metallic thread grid. Silently I Wait by artist Betty Vera illustrated how she creates flowing abstractions in vivid color by applying Procion MX on each of four layers of cotton when the warp is threaded on the loom. In her Hippari, artist Isa Vogel's silk cloth begins with an eight-harness satin weave that gives a different direction and color shadowing to the stripe on each face of the cloth.
