Most of the tablet woven bands we have found from the Viking Age were made using a relatively complicated technique adding an additional element, often in silver or gold. However, some of the tablet woven bands that we know of are made in the simpler style you will find on viking markets today. These bands are made using a technique better suited for beginners.

While researching, the author found only four bands originating from the Viking Age that was made using the simpler technique, where all tables are twisted together and only one element is added. You will find descriptions of all four of these bands in our booklet.

In addition to the mentioned findings, fragmental pieces of silk bands have been unearthed in York. Most likely, these are also of the simpler type. However, a pattern cannot be deciphered from these. An additional find has been made in Gotland that was possibly made using the simpler pattern, but adequate pictures of this band are hard to come by.
