Home Back-Strap Weaving Kit

Ever fancied learning the art of Maya backstrap weaving but couldn't visit us in Guatemala? Well now you can. 

Learn the art of backstrap weaving from your own home, with a pre-prepared loom and tutorial videos.

These looms have been lovingly prepared by hand with beautiful warp colors, ready for you to weave into your own cloth, in your own time. Your finished project could be used as a wall hanging, table centerpiece or cut up and turned into a creation of your imagination. 

The kit includes:

  • Pre-prepared warp
  • Beater 
  • Rope to fix the loom
  • Yarn (both warp and weft)
  • Introduction Videos: "Weaving Processes & Loom Set-up"
  • Tutorial Videos: "The weaving process"
  • One-to-one support from our weaving tutors:  You can contact us directly for personal support with your weaving project.

Choose from the range of warps we have readily available, or contact us directly if you have specific colors or a different size that you would like to work with (subject to availability)

All looms are made using the highest quality, 100% cotton, Rio Blanco yarns, which we use for our own products here at Trama Textiles. Some looms include jaspe yarn, a specialty dye technique found in Guatemala.

Each loom has been prepared and set up by our professional weaving tutors.
