Handbuilt to last.
Made from hard rock maple in our own woodshop, our looms are quiet, dependable, affordable, and portable. Each loom is crafted by hand with the weaver in mind – we make weaving accessible and comfortable. Whether you are completely new to the world of floor looms or an experienced weaver, a Harrisville Designs loom is the perfect addition to your studio.
A loom like no other.
Our looms stand out from the crowd. Over the past 50 years, we've perfected the construction and design of our floor looms, creating a tool for weaving that anyone can use.
A Harrisville Designs loom is...
- easy to assemble & maintain
- made in the USA from quality materials
- great for beginners & advanced weavers alike
Build your own.
Originally designed for the can-do generation of the 1970s, we wanted to create a relatively inexpensive floor loom that could be easily assembled at home. Building a loom in the comfort of your own home brings a sense of accomplishment and empowerment, and helps you understand the loom from the inside out when you sit down to weave.
Our looms feature an easy assembly with a comprehensive manual to follow. No toolbox required—everything you need is included right in the box.
Need any replacement parts? We provide those, too. From new harness cables to tie-up chains, we’ve got you covered.
Choose your size.
Enter the world of weaving with our beginnner-friendly Model A, or enhance your weaving experience with a Model T. All looms are available either assembled or unassembled, and are build from hard rock maple with wheels for easy mobility.
So what's the difference?
The Model A will weave up to 22" wide, with the option of 4 harnesses/6 treadles or 8 harnesses/10 treadles.
The Model T will weave up to 36" wide, with the option of 4 harnesses/6 treadles or 8 harnesses/10 treadles.

Handbuilt in New Hampshire
At Harrisville Designs we’re committed to quality, craftsmanship, and supporting our local economy. We’ve been making looms since 1972 and are proud that our looms are still handmade by skilled hands in our Harrisville woodshop.
Our looms are built to last, and each component of our looms is thoughtfully chosen. Our treadle tie-ups are chains with snaps versus nylon cords (which can stretch over time), and our hanging harness system is the quietest on the market. Each loom comes with a stainless-steel reed, a high castle design, and wheels at no extra cost to you. Harrisville looms fold easily, even when warped, for easy storage and transporting.
We believe that the love that we put into our looms and the sense of place that defines them is what makes them different. Whether you area novice or experienced weaver, we know that you’ll love creating with a loom from Harrisville Designs.
