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.

Japanese traditional weaving looms called “jibata” or “izaribata”. The mechanism of the loom remains the same for 1,500 years.

Large Ukrainian weaving loom, vintage one. It is used for weaving thick woolen cloth and blankets. Such looms were used in Carpathian regions of Ukraine (Western part of the country). This particular loom is vintage; it is exhibited in a museum in Kolomyia (Ivano-Frankivsk region of Ukraine).
