HNW - more ? about beading

I have been eagerly reading the posts on beading.
I have newly arrived here on the list so hope that
my question isn't a repeat.  

My persona is 14th century.  I was wondering, from
what I can tell from drawings, there is some kind
of decoration used as a "trim".  But I can't tell
what was actually used.  Whether it was a woven
braid or trim or if beads were used.  I love to
sew and bead and would love to know if this
method would have been used in the 14th century.

Any ideas?
