What is this craft?
Tablet (card) weaving is an ancient craft of making strong, narrow, decorative bands. In the past men and women wore tablet woven bands as belts, leg wraps, hair bands or garment trims. Today tablet woven bands are used in historical reenactment (from Celtic to late medieval Europe), SCA, larp, folk costumes and all kinds of pagan, fantasy or Viking societies. They can also serve as handfasting cords, guitar straps, bag straps, bookmarks and many other.
