Backstrap Looms

>This backstrap loom is an example of huipil fabric, woven by Quiche speaking Mayan people, in Nahaula Guatemala. Backstrap looms are often fastened to a tree or post. The other end of the loom wraps around the weaver’s waist and the weaver adjusts the tension by leaning back on the loom.
