Ukrainian vintage wooden loom. It has only 2 pedals. But you can weave different colorful cloths on it, even rather thick one. Most of its parts are wooden, only some are metal.

Authentic wooden weaving loom from Poltava region, Central Ukraine. It is at least 100-years-old. The loom has 4 pedals. BTW, note that small wooden pegs are even used instead of nails – this loom is almost totally made from wood.
