Fiber tools

I’m really fascinated by tools that fiber artists use. Today’s trip to see the weavers was as much about learning about the tools they use as the weaving. Ju’s husband Thomas has carved the looms that the ladies use in their daily weaving. One loom was even wider then the porch of the house. There were carved decorations on the ends of the front beams and small temples craved from bamboo to help keep the large widths of cloth even during the weaving process.
