Tablet Weaving

Tablet Weaving


Tablet weaving - the ancient method of weaving ornamental belts and apron bands - is assumed to have come to Nepal from Tibet. It is practised only in some northern areas and in Kathmandu, where a large number of Tibetan refugees have settled. Here tablet weaving has become more tourist-oriented: rather than adorning a traditional dress or apron a tablet-woven band might appear around a tourist's neck as a camera strap or as a tie-belt around jeans.
