There is very little literature on the technique, and it is not widely used, but it produces a very pleasing fabric, with a symmetry (p6, or 632 in orbifold notation) that makes it suitable for the construction of polyhedra with triangular and hexagonal faces. Unlike baskets (which cannot be used if they have no opening) woven polyhedra are closed structures, and the weaving elements form closed loops. If the… CONTINUE READING
