Sunday AfterLOOM

Welcome to the public showLOOM of Mac & Magic Loom Design. We present you an experimental collection of Austroasiatic & Austronesian loin looms (backstrap looms). The technique is basing on foot looms, that are at least about 7.000 years old and have been modified several times, while all the time through keeping the foot on the brace. Starting from the Chinese mainland along the Yangtze they spread southwards all over Southeast Asia, populating the Himalaya up to Northern India and reaching far away islands in Micronesia, Melanesia, etc. States as Philippines, Indonesia & Malaysia are the central part of the so-called Austronesian expansion. The expansion started about 3.000 years ago. At the end they reached the outer points of their expansion as there are Madagascar, New Zealand, Hawaii and Eastern Islands just by raft & loin loom from up 500 BCE.
