Our handmade mini loom frame has been designed to be as compact as possible and work in conjunction with our popular mini rigid heddle. The frame works equally well for tablet weaving.
The mini loom has been constructed from a beautiful dark hardwood called 'Saz', a large sub-tropical tree found in the Himalayan foothills upto altitudes of 1200m. Full instructions on assembly and use are included and presented with the mini loom in a box constructed from handmade Nepalese lokta paper. Mini rigid heddle or weaving tablets are not included with the mini loom
The main advantage of using the mini loom is that all the warp threads are neatly stored on a beam and also the warp threads are held equally spaced out from end to end (allowing for a wider strap to be woven). These advantages are absent if pegging out all your warp threads between two single points. Bands of upto 8cm width can be woven on this loom if using our mini rigid heddle.
If you wish to purchase this mini loom with either the mini rigid heddle or weaving tablets, please select this option below as it will give you a discount of £1.20 as opposed to ordering the items seperately. Both weaving tablets and mini rigid heddle sold with this loom will be handmade from the same beautiful hardwood. For more information regarding these two compatable tools, follow the links below:
