ABSTRACT Region of East Prussia is investigated very low in Lithuania and in Poland. The aim of this investigation is to make complex analysis and to compare folk home textile of East Prussia weaved in territories of Lithuania and Poland presenting technological recommendations for reconstructions manufacturing. In this work there were investigated 56 folk home textile pieces (27 bedspreads and 29 tablecloths) from 5 Lithuanian museums and 2 Polish museums. Number of pieces, patterns, weaves, colours, number of heald shafts etc, and their chronological tendencies were established during investigation. According to the separated samples of home textile from East Prussia region, the reconstructions of home textile fabrics were designed and weaved: 24 units (123.77 m), 12 units of them—with industrial weaving loom, 12 units—with hand weaving loom.
