Red Russian Brocade

Continuous brocade that has a different pattern on the back side is combined with 2/2 Leno in a hemmed towel

Here is another towel from the same warp.

Back side different but nice

Also hemmed but this one has 2/2 Leno for embellishment.

The design is from a You Tube video I Russian using a floor loom and many more epi than the 10 epi on the RH loom. So I adapted it. It uses 6 strands of 16/2 yarn for the brocade weft, the only thing I had in red. The brocade weft goes from selvage to selvage and is overlay/ underlay. The very clever design is two sided.
