Make your own Loom Kit
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 prepped 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.
Looking for other colors for your loom kit? Let us know; we'd be happy to make a custom kit for you. Also applies for custom dimensions (width and length).
Sign up for an online class with Doña Lidia to put the parts together! Check our Experiences section for up-to-date classes. Don't see one that fits your schedule? Let us know, we'd be happy to try to schedule another class for you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
