Tablet Weaving by Lise Ræder Knudsen
Technique > Reconstructions > Leksand


Reconstruction of a cloak from Leksand in Sweden. The twill fabric is woven by Anna Nørgård, who also took the first picture. The cloak was made for the Viking exhibition at Kulturhistorisk Museum, University of Oslo (prior Oldsaksamlingen). The original band is badly preserved as some of it -
presumably flax - has disappeared, while the woollen part is rather well preserved. This means that this band is not a copy of the original, but a reconstruction where a part of the work is my guess.
