Woven Bands, Belts and Braids

Weaving in narrow strips or bands has been done for many centuries and in many cultures. Tablet weaving with cards is traceable to the early Iron Age. The warp yarn is threaded through flat squares of wood that control the direction of the lift. Various patterns are created by the direction of the turn of the tablet or square.

The Northwest Journal has instructions on how to do a Chevron design braid using finger weaving techniques.

Hopi textile weavers weave ceremonial bands and braids.

In Japan, kumihimo braiding techniques use anywhere from 4 to 200 strands for more complex designs.

Though belt weaving may appear small and inconsequential at first, the possibilities are endless. If you have experiences with it, I’d love to hear more. Tell us about it on our Forum.
