Hand weaving photos…

These photos show the differences between the two types of loom used to make the same piece of cloth. Working with both looms has made me much more conscious of tiny little things that make a huge difference to the outcome. For instance, the weight of the reed on a george wood dobby loom beats the weft down much more compared to the narrow band loom, (which relies completely on the weaver to beat down as tight as possible) creating a much tighter and condensed cloth.

Narrow band treadle loom…
zohrehjoon:

From research I have found that similar looms to the Narrow Band Treadle loom has been used in Persia, and is still used today by some tribes in modern Iran. There is evidence that the origin of the loom in West Africa comes from Persia. Design inspiration is taken from Kente as well as Kilims and Jajims woven in Iran using the same, if not similar looms and techniques.

It was so lovely and I am so jealous and sad about of all of those amazing machines just sitting dormant.

We learned about Navajo weaving in 3rd grade. We made our own looms and created small rugs with colorful yarn. The students did a great job!
