Plait from the Hedeby apron dress fragment

This is the english version of an article I wrote a while ago.

The fragment of an apron dress found in Hedeby has a plait braided from six threads in red and yellow sewn over a tuck. A black and white photograph and a reconstruction sketch can be found in the book „Die Textilfunde aus dem Hafen von Haithabu“ (German for: „The textile finds from the harbour of hedeby“) from Inga Hägg. For the apron dress of my wife Bine i wanted to have plaits and therefor I have invested some time in the matter „braiding with six threads“.
