Isn't this called 'card weaving'?

No, this is rigid heddle weaving.

Ow wow, this is too cool. A quetion - did you make those heddles yourself, or did you purchase them from someone? I love the versatility of this - unlike an Inkle loom, where the length is limited by the size of the loom, yyou can make this as long as you want, as long as you have a shuttle large enough to hold the unwoven warp.  
Very cool!

Blitha carved those heddles herself.

I have just started learning tablet weaving. Can you direct us to any sites that talk about how this weaving works???

Rigid heddle weaving such as is being done in the photo is warp-dominant or warp-faced (the warp threads show, the weft often does not). Any book on Inkle Weaving will discuss how this is done. Use a search engine to find Ralph Griswold's online weaving library. There may be a monograph or 2 on inkle weaving there. The inkle loom as modern weavers use it is a modern development, but the type of plain woven band is old, as you know!  
 
Helen Bress's book is considered a classic. I did not care all that much for it, but it is in a large % of public libraries so is easy to find for most.
