With this type of band you can weave Sami pickup patterns. The background warp creates a basket weave., as is used in Baltic style band weaving. It is best to use either thicker pattern warp threads or 2 threads per pattern slot, so that the pattern warp covers the background weave.
You may weave with this type of weaving heddle either back strap style, or use an inkle loom or a small table loom if you prefer.
