Last year I re-wove the Mammen band. I used exactly the same technique as the previous time but with my super-thin honkin gold rather than the gilt passing thread I used last time for the gold. I used my new favourite, Devere's tight-twist 12 thread, in red for the silk warp and the ground weft (I used 2x6 thread loose twist in pink last time). I still used the same white Bockens sewing linen for the rest of the warp, and spun silver for the silver weft. For the soumak I used blue 6 thread loose twist silk.
This one really popped! I think I can declare victory over this band... until I encounter new research :-)
Unboxing. The other kind.
