NEW! Order a loom kit to be made in colors of your choosing. Please note 3-4 hues in the comment section at check-out and allow 3 weeks to make
This kit prepped by Doña Lidia includes everything you need to set-up your own Brocade Backstrap Loom:
-Warp, already prepped (cotton)
-All the sticks needed including warp bars, shed stick, string heddle stick, pepenado sticks (for brocade lines), cane stick for controlling the width
-Sword / Paleta
-Belt and rope made of maguey
-Supplementary weft threads in a variety of complementary colors
-Wooden needle for brocade
We will include a print-out of a guide prepared by Doña Lidia with basic instructions on loom set-up. This activity is meant for a weaver with some experience, on backstrap or other looms.
