More on Textiles

and at the beginning the wool yarn

some examples of the rugs that are made on these looms, I have some in my home that I have purchases over several trips.

Besides the back strap loom, the other major type of weaving is by the hand and foot operated wooden loom. You can peek in shops and homes and see this type of loom. The ladies are using this type of loom to make a rug. (photo taken in Santa Ana de Valle)
