Weaving is one of the oldest crafts known to man. Mats, fishing nets, and simple baskets were among the first things woven many centuries ago. Weaving was basically a home craft used mainly to make the family’s own clothes and bedding with small extras for sale or trade.
When the industrial revolution came, manufacturers put an end to home weaving since it could be done more quickly and easily in a factory. In the less industrialized areas of the world, people still weave their own clothes and mats. It is especially popular in this country among the American Indians. Today, items are woven mostly for fun, uniqueness, and personal enjoyment. Purses, placemats, baskets, and many other items can be woven.
It is truly amazing how God, as a Master Weaver, is able to take the raw, tangled strands of our lives and make them into a fabric or life that can be used to His glory.
