This chapter examines late medieval and early modern trade networks. Through which, Icelandic and the Faroese women’s textile output was exported from the North Atlantic Islands to continental Scandinavia and Europe in ever greater amounts and diversity through the agency of English, and then Hanseatic, merchants. Three important Icelandic sites are compared: the large farm Stóraborg (on the southern coast of Iceland), Reykholt, and Gilsbakki (both inland sites in western Iceland and both ecclesiastic centres). Faroes textiles are also addressed.

Keywords:   Hanseatic, early modern trade networks, textile, Icelandic, Faroese textiles, women, North Atlantic
