Sorazora's Mini Rigid Heddle

Coming Soon To Sorazora

The rigid heddle dates back to ancient times in many parts of the world and is also a part of a backstrap loom that has seen centuries of use and still used today. A mini rigid heddle would be used to weave narrow bands for either straps or decoration on clothing.

All that are needed to start weaving are the heddle, weft stick and twine. Printed instructions included with the tool will explain how to thread your warp through the heddle and load the weft stick. This simple, yet effective device helps separate alternate threads enabling you to weave effortlessly between them.

Sorazora's Mini Rigid Heddle is one of our latest editions to our range of craft materials and tool and comes with a clear explanation printed on hemp paper. The heddle and weft stick have been carved from buffalo horn and polished. The 55% hemp & 45% cotton pouch has been dyed using indigo with myrobalan and we added a soapnut seed to the hemp twine closure.

Our 2012 collection will be with us by the end of March. We'll send out a newsletter to let you know when our new range of products will be available online. For a newsletter, simply request your email address to be added to our mailing list by contacting us at info@sorazora.com
