Another super-quick shopping post today again… I promise those project posts are coming.. soon.. soon…

These are two new pieces of hand-woven tablet woven trim from a weaver in Poland – you can find her work on her Etsy shop: Kram Valgerd.

The grey trim is:

– Material: 80% wool, 20% polyamide
– Length: 410 cm
– Width: 20 mm
– Colors: light grey, black, graphite

The vine pattern seems to be a deviation of the Rams Head pattern, which as far as I know is NOT period correct for the Viking Age, but gosh it’s pretty!

While the blue is:

– Material: 100% wool
– Length: 450 cm
– Width: 17 mm
– Colors: light steel blue, navy

The design for the blue one is based on the Finnish Kaukola Kekomaki find, dated to the 10th or 11th century. (it also reminds me of one of my tattoos!)


You can follow the weaver on Facebook: and while you’re there, why not follow me and my dress diary too?
