I have designed some new tablet weaving cards that are made of durable plastic, because I didn’t like to use the matt board ones. I found that they tended to wear out rather quickly.
I designed these cards to be made of plastic so that they would be able to withstand the friction that is placed on the tablets during weaving. The edges are smooth and the cards turn easily.
The plastic tablets are not mass produced but are made locally by skilled craftsmen.
The Paivatar tablet cards come in 4 colours: Red, Yellow, Blue and Green
Please note: Due to a shortage of plastics in the UK – the Blue cards are no longer available.
One face of the card has a logo, the other side is blank. The multiple colours allow you to use different colours if you are turning groups of cards in different directions. The cards are not numbered, but you can easily write numbers or letters on them with a permanent marker to help you keep track while weaving. Be sure to let the ink dry before using the tablets.
The cards are slightly smaller than the standard tablet weaving cards that are on the market (60 mm square) Because the cards are thin and slightly smaller in size than other tablet weaving cards, I find it easy to hold several in my hand – and I have fairly small hands. The thinner size is also better when working with fine yarns as it allows the warp yarns to be sett closer together, much as in weaving with a fine dent reed.
The holes in the cards are also slightly smaller than the standard cards. This helps to keep the warp threads in alignment while weaving, as there is less play in the warp.

Some of my products are also sold through Etsy. Due to high processing fees, I don’t have all of my items listed in my Etsy shop. If you would prefer to shop via Etsy please contact me and I can set up a Custom listing for you.

Crypto Payments Option is coming soon.
Online shopping is changing, so for those who are looking for alternative payment methods, I am now able to offer a few payment alternatives. This web shop accepts payments by Paypal and a selection of Crypto Currencies.
The Crypto payments will be processed via Coinbase.
As the Crypto Payment option is new, I am working with my developer to iron out any possible bugs in the software. If you have any issues or questions, please contact me.
