När vi startade vår Facebooksida trodde vi aldrig att vi skulle få så många följare. Vi har precis passerat 5000 följare och vi måste fira med några häftiga historiska textilier.

Vi presenterar vår favoritdel på textiler- stadkanter. När du hittar dessa på ett gammalt tyg, så ger de väldigt viktig information om det tyget.
De talar om var som är varp och vad som är inslag. Detta är grunden i all vävning!

Därför delar vi med oss av en samling olika stadkanter. Hoppas att du gillar dom lika mycket som vi gör. Och tack för att du följer oss <3

When we started our Facebook page we had no idea that we would get som many followers. We have just passed 5000 and we must celebrate with some awesome historical textiles.

We present to you out favorite part of textiles- selvages. When you find them in an old fabric,
they give really important information about that fabric.

They tell us what thread is warp and what is weft. The basic of all weaving! 

We therefor present to you a variation of selvages. Hope you like them as much as we do! And thank you for following us <3

-Hey, should we keep that weaving misstake in the kirtle?
– Hrm…. Well, there are a lot of weaving misstakes in the fabrics from the 14th and 15th century… Let’s keep it!
