Sprang! Tabletweaving! Links!

A few days ago, I stumbled across this sprang object in the Met museum, dated to 1450-1500. Late medieval sprang again, isn't that nice? And patterned too...

And if you are more into tabletweaving: Amalia has posted photos and information about a tablet-weave from Estonia. It's the border of an 13-14th century shawl or stole, a beautiful piece, and you should totally check it out.

(You should have clicked that link. Really. Not only because it's a beautiful textile, but also because I have nothing more to say here today.)

Turns out I had the date wrong (must have corrected it about when you were posting!) - it's 13th-14th century.
