ISBN: 91-7209-295-5 "Good discussion of textiles and textile production at Birka and Hedeby. Nice lists of findings at both sites including types of stitches found on textiles (Birka - Stem stitch, chain stitch, slingenstitch, cord-work, woven bands, passementerie)"

? Not sure if this is clasps or weaves or?
