Harrisville Backstrap Clamp with Belt Tie
A Backstrap Loom is based on the simple Peruvian backstrap loom used for centuries to make the colorful woven sashes, straps and bands that are so distinctive. Using the same methods, it’s easy and fun to weave unique, beautiful bands so useful in a variety of ways, from belts to carrying straps.
This is the clamp and belt tie for backstrap weaving. You will also need a small rigid heddle or weaving cards, a belt shuttle or other small stick shuttle, and something to secure the end of your warp to.
