Tablet weaving, also called card weaving, uses a set of cards (often square, sometimes other shapes) with holes typically in the corners of the cards. The warp is threaded through these holes strategically, and designs are created by turning the cards in different directions. Although you don’t technically need a loom for tablet weaving—just a place to anchor your warp—many weavers use inkle, band, backstrap, or even rigid-heddle looms.
