A real-life backstrap loom in miniature form featuring the delicate and stunning regional picbil weave. These pieces make great home decor with an educational touch - see how the loom is set up for weaving, with heddles and other wooden tools still intact. The light shines beautifully through this gentle weave, reminiscent of gauze or even lace.
Make this tradition part of your home with all of the tools attached.
Dimensions: 13 inches by 12 inches (maximum parts of the wooden loom)
Designs may vary slightly as each is handwoven. If you have a particular request, please let Mari know at firstname.lastname@example.org
