Announcement   Thank you for visiting our shop! Loop of the Loom is a small NYC studio hosting SAORI mindful weaving, BENGALA sustainable dye-ing, and other fiber arts & crafts.

SAORI weaving is dedicated to self-discovery by finding one's true identity as a creative individual. Colors unfold, designs emerge and beauty blooms directly from the genius of each unique individual working in harmony with a loom, thread and spark of the moment. Irregular edges, loose threads and the accidental skipping of threads only add to the beauty of SAORI by celebrating the differences in each. No two weavings are alike.

BENGALA is a mud dye made of natural and sustainable material mined from soil. Using the traditional method and modern technology, it brings us the ancient colors conveniently to a new textile dye for fabric, yarn, natural fiber and paper. Bengala lets us connect with Mother Earth just as in ancient times, while allowing us to preserve resources through green living.

About

Loop of the Loom

Loop of the Loom is home to New York City's first-ever registered SAORI weaving studio, gallery and authorized SAORI loom dealer. As one of the SAORI Leader's Committee members in the United States, Loop of the Loom has the pleasure of introducing this unique and easy-to-learn form of, what we like to call, "happy weaving" to the Tri-State Area since 2005.

Our studio in Manhattan's Upper East Side offers classes and workshops, on-site and off-site, to individuals and groups interested in self-discovery, healing and having fun through weaving.

With SAORI's growing popularity, Loop of the Loom has been invited to collaborate with local schools, hospitals, community events and museums.

Students at Loop of the Loom have created distinct and original tapestries, clothing, scarves, bags and many useful items that can be appreciated by all. Other classes at Loop of the Loom include sewing, spinning and Begala eco-dyeing! The Loop of the Loom gallery showcases new works created by those in the SAORI community.
