Språng Images on the Smithsonian Website

19th century Swedish sampler in off-white silk with patterns of holes, accession number 1981-28-199

20th century Tunisian headress, wool, tie-dyed, accession number 2007-8-2; also, an explanation of språng in general.
I think it's worth repeating, this piece is tie-dyed.  It looks different from any picture of språng I've seen so far.

another Tunisian headress, accession number 2007-2-2

5th century Coptic bag or bonnet with patterns of both holes and stripes, accession number 1971-50-482

Mexican fragment of knotless netting, accession number 374960
