Silver Brocade (2484 words)
Metallic brocade on silk bands was the height of ostentatious display for much of the period covered by the SCA (Spies 2000).
Most of these bands were plain, with the pattern created solely by the brocading weft, but a few especially complex examples used a brocading weft to augment a pattern woven into the band in two or more colors.
Metallic brocades almost always use silk as the warp, although some bands from Birka use silk where it will show in the finished product, and cheaper linen warp where it will be hidden by the brocading weft.
