Reconstruction-drawing of the cloak, after Nockert (used without permission)

Black & White and Color Diagrams of the tablet-woven band; after Nockert. Note that the actual colors of woven design are my estimate based on a black and white photo of the pattern and a general description ("the pattern is yellow, orange, and green against a red ground"). The band is 4.5 cm (1.8") wide, and was sewn on as a completed edging. A green piece of string was sewn onto the outer edging of the band. Diagram of the selvage of the broken 2/2 lozenge twill; after Nockert Diagram of the broken 2/2 lozenge twill; after Nockert. The pattern reverses every 30x11 threads.
