Soumack-no matter how you spell it is a technique that can be used to create whole cloth or be mixed with tapestry to create lines that travel in any direction and any angle. Soumack can be used to outline, lock shapes into place, smooth edges or produce a unique surface. Traditionally, it was used throughout the Middle East to produce containers and household items. Mixed with tapestry it becomes an all purpose technique for creating lines, texture and problem solving.
