I started weaving, because I really find it soothing and I was missing good trims and belts for my historical designs. They also do very well as handfasting straps.
You can also request custom designs.
The cotton versions can be used for Ancient Roman times or for a more modern setting. The wool version fits very well in the Viking and Medieval setting.

Request: A servant/slave in ancient Roman times from Dacia.
Together we gathered information about what this woman could have worn. I used a gauze linen and dyed it with madder (red and orange) and birch (green). They think they might have made ‘cheap’ green from mos and algae, and this was also thought of a very toxic process, so for my and my clients health I used birch with a touch of iron.
I made a Chiton (dress), short Palla (draping scarf) and headscarf. All hand sewn with wool thread.
