This trim is made of silver-grey, violet and forget-me-not blue Anchor brand cotton.
It is just half an inch wide, but 263 inches long. Which is over 21ft. (Or a little over 6.5m) Whichever way you look at it, it's a lot of weaving!
Whilst I have tied off the weft (so it will not fray) I have left this piece intentionally unfinished so you can decide what to do with it. It would go well at the edges of a cloak or hood, or make a strong statement decorating the neck of a tunic. It could become part of crowns and headdresses. It could adorn a corset or light bracer or be incorporated onto heavier fabric to make a belt. It could even be utilised as straps for purses and bags. (Given how long it is, I'm certain it could fulfill most of these functions and finish off a very handsome outfit.)
The close-up picture shows both the face and the back of the band.
This piece took me four days to warp and weave.

Tablet weaving has been practiced all over the world by cultures both ancient and modern, from Egypt to Norway. It is a traditional way to manufacture lengths of brightly patterned cord and trim by hand.
If you would like to commission your own piece of tablet weaving then please drop me a message. Many other colours/patterns/widths/lengths/etc are available, both historical and modern.
