Handwoven Tape

Understanding and Weaving Early American and Contemporary Tape
Susan Faulkner Weaver


Narrow bands of woven tape were important to Americans in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, before the days of elastic and zippers. This book documents the fascinating American history of handwoven tape and offers patterns and instructions to enable today's weavers to make it.

Many Early American households had a tape loom for making the tape needed by the family, and this book offers a discussion of the people who wove tape, the patterns woven and the types of looms used, along with over 280 colour images.

The book also gives step-by-step instructions for setting up a tape loom with warp threads, and explains how to weave your own tape. You can weave tape for similar practical uses or to create one-of-a-kind gifts and decorations like key chains, holiday garlands or lanyards.
