More than 100 pieces of SAORI works, which demonstrate how rehabilitated people use perseverance and determination to overcome their limitations, are now on show at the Hong Kong Central Library until February 1.
"ORI" means weaving in Japanese and "SAORI" can be interpreted as "weaving with a difference". The unique art form came from Ms Misao Jo, who designed a lightweight weaving loom that is easy to operate and allows more people to enjoy the pleasure of weaving. Misao encourages weavers to achieve breakthroughs from traditional weaving techniques and express themselves freely. The SAORI she promotes emphasises the beauty of being different, while encouraging participation by people of various levels of ability, through which the philosophy of mutual appreciation, recognition and respect is embodied.
