Slide showing a close up of weaving on an Inkle loom as demonstrated by Anita Apinis-Herman. Anita is second generation Latvian weaver, she was taught by her mother Anna and then undertook further training at the Melbourne College of Textiles. The Inkle loom is not a traditional Latvian loom, however the designs and pick-up technique used are traditionally Latvian. Latvians traditionally wove bands using a back strap loom and incorporated the pick-up technique. With the Inkle loom a warping board is not needed, making it a somewhat quicker method when shorter band lengths are required.
