Advent calendar 22 December 2017

Our twenty-second calendar post is a tablet woven band. Attached to a cloak. From Leksand church, Sweden.

Here we can see a close up on the tablet woven band. The band is woven in wool thread. The weft is missing. The cloak fabric is also made in wool.

This piece is dated to 13th century.
