      Answering this & the comment you left on my site:  there is a reference to fabric with a "diamond" or "rhomb" pattern brocaded into it in Kolchin.  See Sofya La Rus's translation here:http://www.strangelove.net/~kieser/Russia/kolchin.html%c2%a0 it's towards the end of of Page 94.  
      For the project you commented on from my website, I was just learning card weaving for the first time, so I used a very simple pattern that I felt was at least 'diamond'-like, given my limited skills.   I have not done any extended research into narrow weaving in Rus, but it's something I should look at.... hm....
      now with a new project,

      Subject: [sig] Card Weaving in Kievan Rus

      Greetings to the list,

      Does anyone know of card/tablet weaving examples from Kievan Rus or
      nearby regions?  I'd like to weave a belt for myself, but can't find a
      source for reproducible patterns.  I might just base a pattern on
      embroidery or architectural motifs, but was really looking for
      something more precise that I can site in documentation.
