Taquete Sample 1

These are my first taquete samples. These samples were woven on my drawloom as part of an experiment to see how weaving taquete would work on a drawloom. There is much debate as to whether there sumptous fabrics were woven on the drawloom or using heddle rods. I will experiment furhter weaving taquete samples on a table loom, which somewhat simulates a hortizontal loom with heddle rods.

These patterns used for this sample come from Tabby to Taquete. These are advanced designs from the later part of the book, these designs were taken from burial pillows found in Egypt.
