Hello! Loom is a hand-held loom designed for easy, convenient, and small-scale weaving. Once you are done insert the stand and display your weaving proudly!

The design is clever and efficient, with all the elements you need to weave embedded in the laser cut wood; two needles, one comb and a stand for displaying your finished work.




Everything you need in one compact laser cut piece!


Kits available

Don’t have yarn? Want to weave right away? Kits are available that include two “shuttles” to hold your yarn, and work well as pick up sticks!


Conveniently sized

Take your weaving with you on the road, plane, anywhere you might be headed!


Comes with comb, two needles and a stand.

All integrated into one compact design the size of a cell phone.


Reuse your loom over and over again!

Take your weavings off the loom easily and quickly and start a new project with ease.


Comes with a kickstand to proudly display your weaving!
