Product Details

A History of the Handloom from Ancient Times to the Present

The handloom—often no more than a bundle of sticks and a few lengths of cordage—has been known to almost all cultures for thousands of years. In The Book of Looms, Eric Broudy places the wide variety of handlooms in historical context and explores what influenced their development, how they traveled from one area to another, were they invented independently by different cultures and how have modern cultures improved on ancient weaving skills and methods. Broudy shows how virtually every culture has woven on handlooms. Brandeis University Press; Softcover, 176 pages.

It is a bit academic but incredibly comprehensive. Fairly easy to read with great black and white illustrations throughout. Very happy I purchased this book!
