Fragment (Egypt), 5th century

Pattern of polychrome diamonds. Fragment of bonnet or bag

Wool sprang fabric fragment, English (London), ca. 1450-1500. Sprang is an ancient method of constructing fabric that has a natural elasticity. Its appearance is similar to netting, but unlike netting sprang is constructed entirely from warp threads. Archaeological evidence indicates that sprang predates knitting; the two needlework forms bear a visible resemblance and serve similar functions but require different production techniques.
