That is impressive.

Do the stones jut put tension on the strands or do they have an additional purpose?

no any other action only do the tension, we find track of this type of loom at 6000 year bc in africa and middle east, it really work well , simple , bounded, in relation at sisize, but not about weaving

I am so glad to see this. I have wanted to build and carve the components of a warp-weighted loom myself for years. Whoever warped it and is weaving it has wonderful skills as well. It is not easy to keep the selvedge straight on the edge. I’ve done the research, but haven’t made one yet. I have built some inkle looms and do tablet weaving occassionally.

Wonderful to see bamboo used for this. Thanks for showing it. I enjoyed seeing your Scandinavian loom as well. My great-grandmother spent her life sitting at one similar to it in Sweden.
