      you also have it? it is called "Ipek: the Crescent and
      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.
