Learning Journey Part II

Welcome back guys.

For this part all i want to share is the 8 process of weaving before a woven fabric can be tossed, switched, rolled, interrupted, connected, propelled, twisted and weave.

Once the thread is cleaned and put in a dye of color, it is rinsed with water and keep it dried.

1. “Melikas”

The process of isolating the raw yarn as it not to be crumpled. Raw yarns are divided into small parts (30 strands) and then soaked overnight with ashes from coconut or durian skins. Yarn can also be soaked with alum. Then rinsed and boiled with ordinary water to dispose of unnecessary ingredients. The yarn is then colored according to the design of the fabric to be woven.
*This process is no longer practiced because the imported thread is not wrinkled.

2. “Menganing”

The threads that have undergone the diffusion process are inserted into the appliance to determine the length of the thread to be loaded on the appliance. Normally rolls of warp and weft yarn measuring 26 – 31 m can produce 12 – 14 pieces of fabric.

3. “Menggulung”

The molded yarn will be rolled on the roll board according to the width of the gear tooth and the length of the lotus on the roll board to be loaded. Warp is an elongated yarn on the cake. The yarn position should be checked every three times to ensure smooth arrangement.

4. “Menyampuk”

Tipping is the process of inserting the warp thread into the gear or brush. Usually, this process is done in the cake to keep it easy to tuck the thread into the machine. Each brush hole is applied to two veins of the lotus thread. On both ends of the brush are four threaded threads so that the edges of the cloth are not torn when attached to the fabric. The cloth cover is a wooden child with nails on both ends. The cloth cover keeps the edge of the woven cloth to be equal to the distance and does not twitch.

5. “Menghubung”

Connecting is the process of connecting threads from warp to threads left on the machine. The way the bonds are called the canopy. The process is to connect the warp yarn to weave. The small table is called a 10 cm long table, 8 cm wide and 20 cm is used for connecting.

6. “Mengarak”

The work is done after the process of interruption. Stirring is done by stripping foreign threads or rust yarn to rust, including lasers. The amount of corrosion used is usually only two rust and each rust has four stems

7. “Menyolek”

The most complicated work in the process of weaving songket cloth. How to design a pattern is to propose bamboo skewers on the desired warp thread. Songket cloth is usually woven with three-pointed or five-pointed techniques. If using a five-pointed, every five warp threads, one threaded thread is pushed down and the threads of the base are then disassembled. After the warp thread is above, then you can squeeze in various patterns on warp threads using bamboo skewers. “Belira” is placed on each of the bamboo skewers in turn. “Belira” is upheld to delight the bonding of yarn buttons. These buttons will make the flower pattern or motif on the songket cloth. Upon completion of the tapered process, the stain thread with its rust is converted into a weaving cake to be woven into a songket cloth.

8. “Menenun”

Weaving is the last process, ie the thread of the warp is stepped by the feed yarn to be fabricated. For a full patterned songket fabric, golden threads are stretched through gold thread piston to produce flower pattern embroidery or full pattern design. For horizontal pattern songket or scattered flower pattern, golden threads are stretched through attempts to get the desired motifs. Usually after one gold thread is ripped, it is blown (beat) and followed by two threads feed. Weavers will convert button threads by rotation and predefined patterns. This process is repeated so as to produce a songket cloth.

Learning Journey Part I

Assalamualaikum and good morning guys,

In this post i want to share to you guys what i learned from my previous class with my mentor.

From the previous class, i learned to know the part of our looms. It so important for us to know since we need to handle them during the process of weaving.

But, i am so sorry because all the term of the part of loom in Bahasa Malaysia version.

So, let move to the picture below !

The Part Of Our Loom

Additional Weaving Tools

That all for today, till we meet again.

Feel free to let me know your thoughts and comments on this.
