After transferring the threads from the warping table and setting them on the loom, it is finally time to weave. The shuttle holding the weft thread is repeatedly passed back and fourth through the warp shed. Although it is laborious work advancing one thread by one thread, Tamba-fu continues to be totally woven by hand.
