Sprang is an ancient textile method without knots, worked on a set of threads that have been arranged on a frame. This technique used by people for thousands of years was almost forgotten since the beginning of the industrial revolution. The peculiarity of this type of braiding is that you have a mirror image and for every row of work, you can have two rows of fabric. It is possible to create a variety of interesting patterns and the pieces that are created have sideways that can stretch. Some methods were used and then abandoned, but this one keeps coming back. Sprang is an ideal technique for making human clothing. We tried to create a replica sash that was made in Ţinutul Pădurenilor (Pădureni Land) using a circular warp sprang. There is a center line of symmetry around which on one side we have threads in Z twist and on the other side in S twist. The sash grew out from that middle line. It was done in interlinking technique that gives it a great elasticity.
