lesternessman did you scan that yourself? If so think you can scan it at a higher resolution and just grab a swatch of the fibers?
Just to add to the unsubstaniatedness a little blerb from TFN (shudder):Originally posted by defyitall+Jan 3 2006, 04:32 PM--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(defyitall @ Jan 3 2006, 04:32 PM)</div><!--QuoteBegin-Primrodo@Jan 3 2006, 03:18 PM
I swear I haven't seen this crop up as much as I have in the past 2 months.
Yeah, me and you both. As some people with more costuming experience than me have pointed out: homespun is just a type of weave. So Indian Homespun is just homespun weaved fabric made in India. Which isn't very specific.
Besides it being an unsubstantiated rumor.

Yes, it could have been material bought in India with a homespun weave.Â That doesn't help anyone find fabric though.Â It's like saying that that to makeÂ TK armor you need to buy white plastic.Â Very vague.
Ever tried looking up "Indian Homespun" on fabric websites.Â Never comes up because it's too vague a description.
Also, Ian McCaig is a concept designer.Â He's not Trisha Biggar, he's not a cutter, or anything involved with the actual fabrication of the costumes.Â He helped design them in the stages of pre-production.Â I doubt he would know anything more than basic knowledge of the materials used.
The fact that Indian Homespun is an unsubstantiated rumor still remains.Â Because it doesn't give any information.Â It doesn't help anyone buy screen used fabrics.

Well the quote was taken from pre TPM right?
Surprisingly the BG Jedi had a lot of variety and detail, many fabrics looked beautiful as well.

A concept artist would know very little about textiles
