This folding floor loom provides 36" (90 cm) of weaving width and the solid feel of full size floor looms. The Artisat Jack loom can be ordered in either 4 or 8 shafts (6 or 10 treadles) with or without Back-Hinge Treadles.
Kits are available to convert from 4 to 8 shafts and to add Back Hinge Treadles. The 4 shaft version can be ordered with the ability to be upgraded in the future to an 8 shaft or at a reduced non-upgrade-able price.
The Artisat is a perfect floor loom for those that want a wider weaving width but are limited in space. Its ability to fold allows it to be stored in a small area when not in use and it can be folded to take up only 46" x 14" of floor space. The loom can be folded with the warp in place after weaving has started.
The 4 shaft looms have 6 treadles and the 8 shaft has 10.
The treadling system of the Artisat has been improved to speed tie-up with pre-adjusted loop cables that eliminate adjustment time when setting up the loom to weave.
The Warp Beam is 1 7/8" (4 cm) in diameter and a second can be added for working with fibres of different elasticity. The warp beam can also be converted to support sectional warping.
