Description

Tablet Weaving (often card weaving in the United States) is a weaving technique where tablets or cards are used to create the shed through which the weft is passed. The technique is limited to narrow work such as belts, straps, or garment trim.

The origins of this technique go back at least to the early Iron age. Examples have been found at Hochdorf, Germany,[1] and Apremont, France.[2] Tablet-woven bands are commonly found in Iron age graves and are presumed to be standard trim for garments among various peoples, including the Vikings.[3]

As the materials and tools are relatively cheap and easy to obtain, tablet weaving is popular with hobbyist weavers
