Greek proverb: Ἐκ τοῦ κρασπέδου

Here's a saying from Apostolius, C6.91, with a Latin version from Clavis Homerica. The image is from Andrea Kirby at Flickr. Here are some more Apostolius proverbs.

Ἐκ τοῦ κρασπέδου τὸ ὕφασμα δείκνυται.
Ex fimbria tela ipsa ostenditur.
From the fringe the weaving is known.
