Ground Looms

This is a replica of a ground loom. This type of loom was originally developed around 7th Century BC and was used by Bedouin in the northeast regions of Indla. The looms were fastened to the ground with stakes and the weaver sat on the ground as she wove. The vertical beam loom was developed in Syria or the region of the Caucasian Mountains around 2400 BC. This type of loom is still used today for making rugs and tapestries. Looms are still similar today, but instead of staking them in the ground, they may be fastened to door jams or pieces of furniture. Weavers may sit on pillows or use elbow cushions to make themselves more comfortable.
