My purchase was shipped immediately and I love that it arrived protected in recycled packaging. The video provided for finishing the guitar strap is also greatly appreciated. I'll be back! Thanks

Inkling my way through life.........

I am a passionate and prolific inkle weaver.
At the age of 17 I saw my first inkle loom and with the help of a library book and my dad, I built myself one. Now I own 10 inkle looms, some home-made and some made by large manufacturers. Each has it's own purpose. One for wider pieces, one for longer pieces, and one to pack in the suitcase for travel.

Inkle looms produce warp-faced bands, no wider than 6 inches.
Even with such a narrow constraint, I find endless ways to combine colors into patterns, constantly finding new materials, techniques and inspirations.

I enjoy custom orders and special requests. If you can't find what you are looking for, we can work together to create something special combing your vision and my talent.

I also have two other Etsy shops for special markets:
One-of-a-kind guitar straps can be found here:
Straps and sashes for historical costume, Native American regalia, etc can be found here:
