The art of weaving has been known since the Neolithic Period, as the findings of that period indicate, such as spindles, distaffs etc. In the Homeric epics, women had as one of their main activities the weaving.

The distaff was a tool, used for spinning wool into thread. It is designed to hold the unspun fibers, keeping them untangled and thus easing the spinning process. Fiber is wrapped around the distaff, and tied in place with a piece of ribbon or string. In Greece through antiquity, distaff was called ilakati and it was ussually decorated with carvings.
