Can I get help or feedback on a couple of things that are kicking around in my mind. The first is can we assume that from 1880-1950 a progression took place in which weavers had less time to spend producing wool, coloring and ultimately weaving the final product. If this is true and my fellow readers agree to it then we might project what characteristics that early vs. late weavings might have.
The other thing that I wonder about is if bags and other weavings were on display for all to see ( other members of tribe) can we make judgements on the quality of weavings produced over the previously mentioned timeline. Was it more important early on to produce textiles that were not only utilitarian but also showcased a weavers skills. If anyone can help it would be most appreciated.
