I wove this plain linen band to finish the cut hems on my blue handwoven Sasanian Robe. This project was inspired when I discovered a note<a href="">The Metropolitian Museum's analysis of a 7th C Persian Riding Coat. </a>.
This description of the hem finishing technique inspired me to weave my own linen for this purpose. Weaving the band was very fun, because I  knew the end result was going to give my handwoven robe a final touch of authenticity.
