miniloom1 Travis Meinholf in the Makers Market

Cover-guy Travis Meinholf is now selling in the Makers Market! Check out his Mini Laser Loom:

This is the simplest weaving tool developed, a combination of the rigid heddle used in the swiss neolithic period and the backstrap loom which has been used on every continent, some to present day. I engineered this design based on my research for my Master’s degree in textiles, and have executed it using a lasercutter following my vector illustrations. It weaves a thick cloth strip, about 8 inches wide by 2-? yards long. The loom is cut from sturdy acrylic in bright colors, and plywood. If you have a specific color want, just check ‘specific’ as your color choice and we can e-mail about it.
