A blue silk filet with pearls

I want to show you another tablet woven piece of mine which I made for a young interpreter colleague of mine.

I already collected the evidence for silk filets in this article of mine.

The ribbon is made in tablet weaving technique, a very simple pattern inspired by the London finds where ribbons with simple stripes were found which also had braided ends and some might well have been used for something like this.

The material used is twined silk, naturally dyed with indigo in two tones from Archäotechnik textile Fläche and it is lovely to work with!


I then embroidered pearls an coral pearls in a flower shape onto the ribbon.
