Indigenous Caribbean Network

I am looking for any resources, especially photos/descriptions of the type of looms the Tainos would have used. The only name I have come across so far is called an Arawak Loom, but I can't seem to find any info on it. Thanks in advance, Kauamarix

Takaji Datiao,

i viewed the photos of your loom. It looks great! Will you be posting images of the naguas as you weave them? I used to own a 36 inch floor loom but sold it about 10 years ago because I was moving, so I have some experience with weaving. I am interested in your posts. Thank you for sharing.
