When I was 17 in high school, I took a drafting class, the project plans hand drawn were kept.  Many years later this once used vellum has been cut apart to be woven into a container.  The main part of the container is made from very old unused vellum. This vellum has been cut into strip for the two different weaving techniques.  On the sides of the container are hand drawn lines and patterns that mimic the old drafting project drawings.
