Anyone know of a source for clothing trim made from tablet weaving?

Hi Patrick,

This is a pretty good link I think............

http://www3.sympatico.ca/kirkflowers/tablet.html

Although I have patience for some things, I am always amazed by people who make these patterns . I have seen it done many times and those of my friends who do it say that it is quite easy, but I certainly wouldn't have the patience, but I do admire those who do.

Hope that this is perhaps what you are looking for patrick... or at least a start.

Regards as ever,

Russ

Hi Patrick.

Funny you ask, I just have put a little resourche into the subject.
And these are the sites I have found so fare..

Unfortunatly they are German so I hope you can read that...
http://www.diamantweber.de/ I have send him an English e-mail a couple of day's ago with some questions but up to now, no answers...

http://home.arcor.de/aisling/Brettchenweben.html Lots of info, and some interresting links also English ones.

http://www.flinkhand.de/ This is a verry nice Lady, i allready got a lot of info from here, so send here an e-mail, see writes and reads English verry well. See can tell you about what patterns would be most likely for your timeperiod and culture, see makes more of this stuff then see uses hereself, so see will sell also...

Then try www. e-bay.de and search for "Brettchenborte" that is the German word for it.
Maybe it works also for the Ebay.com??

I am great fan of everything Celtic BC, including there weapons.

Show-offs! Razz Tablet weaving is hardcore brain crunching stuff. Especially if you want to make a complex pattern, and getting the intended result. I did it with 6 tablets, which is pretty much the easiest, and already struggled with that. I wouldn't even dare attempting to make one of those 150 tablet bands that have been found. My greatest respect for those that can do it! Happy

Yeah... I think it's like anything. The basics are simple, but do do the really complex stuff takes a lot of hard work and skill. My fiance does it, has trouble with the hard stuff, and she has two advanced degrees! Talk about brain crunching Eek!

Hi Patrick,
If you don't mind shipping from England - then Steve the Weave could be your man:

http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/stevetheweave/

He is very reasonably priced, fast and tries to use dies that would have been available at the time. He did the silk tablet weaving for my SH sword.

Thanks Paul!

I think that may be a workable source.

Also right now on ebay....

Another place...

Just keep finding them...

You could probably dig around on the http://www.armourarchive.org/ and turn up a few more sources as well.
