Saaremaa patterns are interestingly closely related. There are similar details on coifs, sleeves and bands. Saaremaa scarf has been inspired by the band pattern of Jämaja. Band was used to fasten clothes; requisites and jewellery were attached to it. Band-making technique was well-known, young girls were already learning it. According to the technique, more common were tablet-woven band and figured belt. Tablet -woven band was long and narrow and its pattern was usually the same on both sides.
I would like to thank Anita Kütt and Ulvi Põld for their help on creating the Saaremaa woollen wrap.
