I decided to do a video tutorial about the method: https://youtu.be/pM4qah0Ijwk
I show the variations I'm usually using in order to make a good sling. So the end result is "egyptian style" but not a reproduction. For further possibilities see the pdf in the initial post.

Have fun!

This is a loose list of slings to follow up on regarding this technique.

Very likely related and also interesting regarding a technical comparison with ancient egyptian slings and the cortaillod sling:

With option for similarity:

https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/E_Af1979-01-52
https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/E_Af-9900

If anyone has more infos / detailed pictures of these, I would be interested.

Well done!  A split pouch I really did not expect to be made with this method.  It looks very usable and is likely quite fast to make. Thanks for showing!

Thank you thank you! It slings very well in my amateur opinion. The pouch was fast, it took me longer to braid the cords. Also, it is still an Egyptian sling just like yours because I'm 50 percent Egyptian!
