For the exhibition at Niedersulz and for the weaver market at Haslach Fiona sewed  bags made out of linen, of course we decorated them with tablet woven bands:

different silk necklaces "round" woven with tablets:


In the last years I wove a few belts to sell at our weaving market at Haslach:




At least some more pictures from bands in different techniques, my brand new table tablet loom (built 2006) and my warp weighted loom for tablet weavers.

...and maybe the smallest "Ram`s horn" of Austria only 8 mm wide, made out of sewing silk (polyester):


A experimental band, woven in 2006, made out of 0,35 mm silver and copperwire, 20 cm long and app. 1 cm wide:

Silver jewellery (0,35 mm silver wire) woven with tablets:

The widest band I ever wove before, using 132 tablets and a thick cotton yarn. The result a table carpet, 85 cm long (without the fringes) and 26 cm wide.
The main problem was to hold a constant width !


A scarf using different materials for the weft.

A so called "velvet" band, the original bands were found in Usbekistan.

Some woven bands using multicoloured wool, without a pattern (3/1 double twill and double face)
