CA Rug Loom 2

Custom-built loom for knotted-pile weaving. Built by Simon Fraser at the request of Vicki Fraser.

Large custom-built tapestry-style loom for knotted-pile weaving. The loom is very tall and quite shallow; about a quarter as deep as it is tall or wide. The loom is warped, with some knotted pile cloth in the working area and on the cloth bar. There appears to be a warp bar, with the warp extending over the top of the loom frame. There is a shed stick to create one shed, and rod with looped string heddles to control the second shed. Built by Simon Fraser at the request of Vicki Fraser.
