Pedal Looms

Ajijic, Jalisco

The wooden PEDAL LOOM is a tool that has been part of the elaboration of clothing for a long time.  The tool allows the artisan to work with materials like wool, cotton, and acrylate amongst others. In Ajijic, incredible pieces of acrylate and cotton are created. Setting up the loom takes time and dedication, first the roll is assembled with the desired pattern as a base and then yarn by yarn is set up at the loom so that each time the needle passes the loom the textile will be formed.

The patterns can be customized, although the family has a large catalogue of created patterns that you can choose. 

Cushions, bed covers, table placemats, table runners, tablecloths and ponchos, are some of the pieces that the family makes.

Things to consider

  • The colors available are the catalogue colors. 
  • The patterns to create need to be lineal patterns. 
  • There is a limit of meters in custom patterns.

Special care

  • Do not tumble dry.
  • Preferable hand wash cold for longer duration.
