This belt fragment survived between two copper alloy sheets formed strap-end . Unfortunately the examination couldn't decide that textile was animal (wool, silk) or vegetable (linen) in nature. The textile fragment is about 15mm wide. It's dated from 14th cent.
I found very simple embroidery pattern and I think that this is good for me as a beginner:) Because I need cushion not pillow I decided to start with wool and make cushion to be strong enough to sit on it. This iconographic source above is dated c. 1470.
Tablet weaving woolen belt-voila! (above my inspiration: Swedish St. Anna's figure from St. Anna's altar, Gotland, 1420, http://www.historiska.se/).
Belt is quite long (approx. 2m) and just 1.2 cm wide. I made them using 6 wooden tablets. Now, I must buy copper alloy trapezoid buckle and make buckle plate and strap end.
