The Winner Of The Silk Design Competition - David Lee Meisenburg, USA

Although all the silk designs submitted were fantastic and I would like to reward all of those that submitted, there was one silk design that understood the simplicity of jacquard woven silks better than the others. This design came from David Lee Meisenburg in the USA. 

One of the other designs I loved what the Magritte styled pipes from Yoann Durand, but the design, which I will show below, relied on four colours which in woven silk design can cause too much clutter. This would mean potentially one colour for the warp and three weft threads. 

Thank you to those that participated and we look forward to expanding the number of entrants on the next competition. David Lee Meisenburg has won $200.00 AUD in cash and 3 of his bow ties once they have been turned into a silk. Congratulations.
