Notes: 

After studying an extant piece of taquete at the Cloth Workers Centre. I wanted to redact the draft and weave my own version of this monochrome textile. In order to test my draft, I had to weave the textile.

Notes: 

Introduction: the Item This aumônière (alms purse, or pouch) was made as a gift for Mistress Margaret de Mey on the occasion of her elevation to the Order of the Pelican. Margaret often dresses in 14th Century fashion. Therefore this aumônière is based on those in use in the 14th Century.

Historical information
 
This entry was inspired by one of 3  patterned woven textiles were found in Gayet’s Antinoe excavations. These textiles were pillows placed under the heads of Romans in the cemetery (Becker).
Notes: 

I have been wanting to tapestry weave a roundel for years. Weaving a circle is one of the most difficult tapestry weaving techniques and it has taken me a while to build up to attempting a roundel. I have woven this roundel using my SCA heraldry.

Notes: 

Samitum is a commonly found textile in Sasanid Persia. It is found as cloth for clothing, but also as trim on the Antinoe Riding Coats. I have found references to 9 extant Sasanian samitum textiles.

Notes: 

This cloth is another family project. this length of cloth was woven and sewn up into a tunic for my son. I used a diamond twill, which was common in the Viking era. Eldgrimr chose the warp color, as this warp was also used to weave cloth for him.

Notes: 

This project uses a colour and weave effect to produce Hounds Tooth. This shows how easy it is to produce exceptional fabrics on a rigid heddle loom. I wove this bag, after I found a reference to Roman era houndstooth cloth.

Notes: 

I am making this to line the Drachenwald Royal Artisan Collar, so it can be pinned to costumes and so as not to chafe if worn next to the skin.This is based on a piece of damask I studied at the Clothworker's Centre London. I have simpliefied the design of this piece.

Notes: 

This shawl was woven on 4 shafts in point twill threading. It was wet finished and has twisted fringe.I wove this shawl on the same warp as the family Skjoldhamen hoods. I changed the weft to green so that it would coordinate, but not exactly match.

Handwoven Fabric for 11th C Scandinavian Hoods
Notes: 

This was woven in 2010 for Baroness Suibhan's first daughter. They have gotten much use of it. :)

This blanket is linen woven in twill, though now I know that nearly all linen finds from the Middle Ages were woven in plain weave.
