    Finland has a unique tablet-weaving culture dating back a thousand years to the Finnish Iron Age, when weavers created incredibly elaborate bands. This book offers 56 band designs, from tiny finishing bands to spectacular belt bands, all based on tablet-woven treasures buried in the ground a thousand years ago. It includes illustrations of the original archaeological finds and details on a completely new tablet-weaving technique based on thorough research by the authors.
