Tablet Weaving Gallery 8
Nancy Spies - Brocade Weaver

These and other patterns are in my book Ecclesiastical Pomp & Aristocratic Circumstance: A Thousand Years of Brocaded Tabletwoven Bands. The bands on this and the next two pages were woven to emphasize the designs and are not meant to be historical reproductions of actual bands.
