the Rose" it is Ottoman textiles and has a lot of
pictures of Russian stuff as well. Being that the
Russians didn't make their own brocades, never the
less, the pictures show a lot of Russian Garments, all
within period. one of the pages has a close up of the
braided or tablet woven closings and shows the cards.
It is not an artifact (the card weaving part) just a
diagram, but this very important source seems to think
that the Turks, Persians and Russians did it.
I also remember my old Mistress/Laurel a million years
ago telling me that the russians did tablet/card
weaving for some of their trim, which is why I took
the class originally.She had been to Russia at the
time and was-and is- the most knowledgable costume
person I know to date.
I realize this is not hard evidence, you all like to
see an actual extant piece, so I guess the Ipek book
is the closest I have found so far.
