SAORI Weaving Equipment

Many of my SAORI items are listed on my ETSY shop.

However, if you’d like to talk to me about looms or other SAORI weaving equipment, please feel free to contact me by either email or by phone.  I’m happy to discuss the various looms and equipment that may be suitable for you.  Whether it is the style of loom, the height of the loom best suited to you or other equipment and accessories you may be interested in, I’m here to help.

Once you purchase a loom, I’m also here for support by phone, Skype or email.

Listed below are the looms, their features and the 2017 pricing.

I try to keep a good selection of the accessories, warps, yarns, books and other items offered by SAORI Japan.  There is a website from the manufacturer (Sakaiseikisangyo Co. Ltd.) in Japan that has all of the items available.  You can find it here .  If there is anything here that you have questions about or would like me to order in for you, please let me know.

SAORI Weaving Equipment is also available on SAORI Salt Spring Etsy Shop.
