Product Information

Originally published in 1919, this classic book is arguably the most excellent introduction to the craft of hand-loom weaving. It gives plain instructions in great and clear detail on how to make a simple hand loom, mount it and start the work. The form of loom described is developed from those in use from ancient times, and embodies the experience of many generations of skilful weavers -- Italian, French, English, and even Arabian and Chinese.
