Woven Bands: aa060498

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.
