What Equipment do I need to weave White Tapestry?
A wide variety of equipment is used, from a basic frame loom that leans against a wall or table edge to a large massive wooden or metal loom with different shed-making devices. Basically, one needs a strong rectangular frame that can hold warp threads under good tension and good lighting conditions to see one's work clearly. A diverse selection of weft materials, particularly in a range of colors available in gradations, is also preferable depending on the imagery in the piece. Hand-held bobbins allow ease of manipulation and keep the yarns from tangling.
By definition, a White tapestry is a weft-faced plain weave with discontinuous wefts that conceal all of its warps. Simply weave the warp and weft threads together, and voila.
It's just that easy, or not?
Let's begin. At its core, white tapestry-weaving is a matter of simple math. Think of a tapestry as a grid composed of threads that are fixed on a large frame which is known as a loom. The vertical threads are known as warps, and the horizontal threads are known as wefts. The wefts are a collection of separate pieces of wool or silk threads with white colors.

White Tapestries were woven by hand for centuries, but late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century technological innovations introduced the possibility of machine-woven tapestries. Today, workshops and manufactories still produce hand-woven and machine-woven tapestries. Some tapestry weavers still follow the traditional process, copying a painted cartoon; other tapestry weavers take complete creative control, even improvising their design as they weave.
Historically, weavers worked while facing what would be the back of the tapestry. They copied with their colored weft threads the tapestry's design. The design referred to as the "cartoon," took the form of a painting—made on cloth or paper, the same size as the planned tapestry. This cartoon was either it temporarily attached to the loom, flush against the backs of the warp threads, and visible in the gaps between the warps; or it was hung on the wall behind the weavers, who followed it by looking at its reflection in a mirror behind the warps. Because weavers copied the cartoon facing on the back of the tapestry when the piece was finished, removed from the loom, and turned around to reveal the front, the woven image on the front of the tapestry was the mirror image of the cartoon shown. Weavers could avoid this reversal of the design by using the mirror method to copy the cartoon's design. The cartoon was not physically part of the completed tapestry and could be reused multiple times in order to make duplicate tapestries.
