Damask Trim

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:59

185 warp threads

Wound separate waste warp of various cotton yarns to ensure I could weave as much of  the silk warp as possible. This technique worked really well, I had very little waste of the silk yarn!

Handwoven Persian Robe

Submitted by Jahanara on Fri, 07/30/2021 - 21:15

I set out to weave cloth to make a 7th C Persian Robe based on several extant robes I have found online and seen depicted on many Sasanian Silverworks. When I began my costuming research I found a number of images of Sasanian women in a variety of sources.

Tapestry Roundel

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 12:46

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.

Royal Artisan Collar Liner

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:56

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.

Taquete Sample 1

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:50

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.

Damask Samples

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:48

These are the first samples I have produced on my drawloom. It took me ages to get my drawloom set up, but now that it is ready to go I'm cruising along and having a lot of fun! Here are my samples so far. I will come back and write more about each one soon!

Linen Blanket

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:43

Width:  32inches
Length:  36
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.

Family Hoods

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:52

The woven fabric has been used to create a pair hoods my husband, myself, and incidentally our son who often ends up wearing the unlined hood. The hood design is based on the Skjoldehamn hood (Løvlid, 2009). This hood was carbon dated to 995-1029 AD (Løvlid, 2009).

Diamond Twill Fabric

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:45

This diamond twill fabric will be made into garb for our family. I started by warping the loom with a solid blue warp, threaded as a broken point twill. I then wove a sample using every colour wool I own in the same size, so everyone in the family could choose their preferred weft.
