In the Iceland National Museum in Reykjavik there was also a display on tablet weaving. This wasn’t in the Viking/Settlement Age area at all, but rather upstairs with much later items. Still, as tablets have been found from Viking sites, and it appears that the technique has been around for many centuries, I wanted to include it here too.
This display was on 18th and 19th century objects, and included clothing and needlework including a brown balaclava helmet, two men’s caps and braces (suspenders) The tablet weaving was described as “tablet-woven skirt-bands” “used to hitch up the skirt when walking in wet or dirty conditions”. The display also included a pattern book from 1816 with different designs for needlework.
The example above looks like text woven into the strips.
The example above seems to have a reindeer or something woven into the band.
