About MAHTAVAhandicraft

On Etsy since 2014

We combine ancient techniques with modern ideas to create beautiful items.

Mahtava Handicraft store offers mostly tablet woven trims and belts for reenactors of Early Middle Ages but you can also find handwoven cotton bracelets here.
I learnt to weave with tablets over 10 years ago. My interest in tablet weaving stems from experimental archeology and historical reenactment . While mastering the technique I realized that it can be used not only to reconstruct archaeological finds but also to create utterly modern, unusual items like bracelets or pant belts. That is how Mahtava brand appeared.
Tablet weaving is very time consuming technique. Each item in my shop is carefully handcrafted with good quality materials so that you could enjoy it for years!
"Mahtava" means "awesome, fantastic" in Finnish and that is what our handicraft is like! Just try it!
I believe wearing our belts and bracelets will make you feel "mahtava" every day :)
