"Attached to the apron is a narrow inkle-woven band, which wraps around and is tied or buckled in front with the ends hanging down. It finishes the waistline like a sash, and has a design woven into it. Similar sashes are woven and worn by many of the peoples of Northern Europe."
Woven bands. I'd love to have some of these hanging up in our house! By Karen Barbe.
