I was asked to weave something as largesse for TRM of the Midrealm, from the East. Their personas are 10/11th cent. Swede. So I really tried to research into period correct, and persona appropriate patterns that they would be able to use after their reign. I chose to incorporate their personal colors, and hope they enjoy the final product.
Each band was about 3.5 yards long, made with #10 cotton, using a missing hole technique, period appropriate for their personas. The motifs and size are also period appropriate. As seen here: http://www.shelaghlewins.com/tablet_weavi…/patterns_past.php
Something I really like about missing hole technique, is the added depth it gives to a pattern. It may be slightly more complex, and can be more challenging due to the missing hole, but it really makes a difference in the final product.
