From living rooms to hotel lobbies to restaurants, this stylish artisanal craft was having its heyday. Like many other trendsweavings have made a major comeback. This woven doormat is so vibrant and beautiful, we hate to put our stinky shoes on it!
It seems counterintuitive to stop weaving and advance the warp every few inches, rather than weave as far as possible before advancing; however, I have found that my cloth has more consistent quality when I advance the warp frequently.
B is for Band Band My Norwegian friend calls this a ribbon. Can be woven on any loom, but most of mine have been woven on my inkle loom or on my band loom.
One of my very first inkle band projects was a pair of shoe strings for my then five-year-old.
I keep a box of bands that I have woven over the years, that I turn to when I need a piece of trim, or a handle for a bag, or a tab for a handwoven towel, or a pretty cord to tie up a rolled handwoven rug.
Band Knife Tool that is used as a beater for the band loom, to beat in the weft. The weight of this band knife is perfect for getting a firm and steady beat.
I also have a shaped band knife that I use with a rigid heddle.
The weft is wound on an indented area of the handle, making a smooth and efficient way of placing the weft, and then beating it in place.
Band Lock Holds the band in place while weaving with a rigid heddle, and provides an easy way to advance the warp. It is made for weaving narrow bands, up to four or five inches in width. Because there is a back beam and front beam with ratchet and pawl, it can hold quite a bit of warp.
I have done a seven-yard warp, but it will hold much more than that. It is a mistake that makes the weaver groan, and usually happens only once. You can guess how I know.
Beam, Breast Squared crossbar at the front of the loom, over which the warp passes as it comes from the reed. I sit very close to the breast beam, and high on my bench, so that my elbows clear the beam.
This posture is ergonomically healthy for my back and shoulders. Beam, Cloth Front roller onto which the woven fabric is wound. This octagonal beam has a ratchet and pawl to tension the warp. I enjoy seeing the new cloth winding around this beam, but best of all is unrolling the fabric and cutting it off when the warp is finished.
Beam, Foot This beam acts as a foot rest, which my legs are thankful for. Besides that, it is also critical support for the structure of the loom. These Swedish looms are simple in concept, but extremely sturdy.
Beam, Knee The cloth passes over the knee beam before it rolls onto the cloth beam. Beam, Treadle The treadles pivot from a rod supported on this beam at the back of the loom. The rear-pivot treadles contribute to light touch treadling, which is very kind to my legs and feet.
Beaming The process of rolling the warp onto the warp beam. Beat Placing the weft into position using the beater.

The type of fabric being woven determines how firm or how light a beat is needed. Rugs require a very firm beat and loosely woven lace fabric requires a light beat.
Beater The swinging frame at the front of the loom that holds the reed and is used to beat the weft into place. Gaining a rhythm with the beater while throwing a shuttle takes the coordination of playing a grand musical instrument.
