18" rustic backstrap loom is the favorite of our customers. Great to weave a scarf or table runner!
A real Backstrap loom -- hand-carved in Guatemala by on of our Fair Trade artisans. Juan lives up in the mountains with his wife and children. He takes pride in his work and being able to provide for his family. Just like the looms that the Guatemalan Mayan women use everyday - rustic and hand-carved!
All pieces shown are included -- not included are the stick shuttle and the rope to attach the backstrap and to attach the back beam to the post. Mayan women usually use just a small stick wound with the yarn as a shuttle.
Handwoven Backstrap belt included--- colors vary from the pictures.
This size loom comes with a second batten / pickup tool -- to use in more intricate weaving designs. Our looms are typical Guatemalan style!
18" length of the wooden bars.
