"Winter is coming" - bayou blue and thistle


This tablet-woven bracelet was made on an inkle loom using 40 tablets and 160 individual threads.

Tablet (or card) weaving creates narrow bands of cloth. The weaving method was used extensively in northern Europe during the Middle Ages. Archaeologists have found tablet-woven bands dating to the 3rd century A.D. (C.E.). Weaving tablets have been found dated to about 400 B.C. (B.C.E.). Tablet weaving was also practiced in Egypt, China, and Japan.

Although today tablets are usually made from cardboard, in medieval Europe they were constructed from wood, ivory, bone, horn, leather, and a variety of other materials.

Tablet weaving produces a double-thick, warp-faced fabric.
