Brocade Backstrap Loom Kit
This is a practice loom with all the tools included for intermediate and advanced weavers, because the loom is set up for supplementary weft brocade. Each loom has been prepared by hand by our friends in San Antonio Aguas Calientes, a town famous for beautiful brocade weaving. You'll notice that there are two extra rods that facilitate supplementary brocade in horizontal lines. Other unique figures can be inserted using the wooden needle included and counting the warp threads as necessary.
To see Doña Lidia's demonstration of simple brocade weaves, head over to our blog.
Each bundle includes a backstrap belt and rope both made out of maguey, a natural cactus fiber. Eight different supplementary weft colors will also be selected and included in each bundle. Feel free to use other threads for supplementary weft also.
This loom is intended for someone who already has some experience with weaving.
Width: 9 inches (plus a few inches for the wooden parts)
Length: 23 inches
