About The Backstrap Loom

The backstrap loom is tied to the artisan’s body; it is simple and can be transported anywhere. It is attached to a pole or a tree, its length is 3 meters, and its width is a maximum of 50 or 60 centimeters. It interweaves brocades, creating an interweaving that crosses the textile and forms figures under a mathematical count, like a mantra the artisan repeats in his head.

About The Pedal Loom

The Spanish introduced the pedal loom in colonial times, which can be up to three meters wide. Men usually handle the work because of their strength, weaving faster than with the backstrap loom.
The communities have adapted the looms to their own needs and iconography, which results in iconography, leading to various textile types. Both looms can last a lifetime, have impressive structural strength, and do not require electric power.
