Overview

Nalbinding - What in the World Is That? by Ulrike Claßen-Büttner

This is the black and white version of the book:
Nalbinding - An Age-Old Technique

Nalbinding was and is found around the world, but in most industrialized countries it is virtually unknown today. This was not always so. Only when knitting began to spread in the European Middle Ages, did nalbinding sink into oblivion there.

Today, creative people are re-discovering nalbinding.

If you are interested in how nalbinding developed, this book provides you with a historical overview based on the most important archaeological finds.

If you are a textile artisan or scholar, you will find fascinating structures and diverse variations described and explained.

And finally, if you have the courage to learn and revive an ancient handicraft, there are instructions for various stitches and practical projects.
