The Griffith Rapier Loom
This loom was Designed and Developed at Griffith Textile Machines. As the Griffith Loom is pedal driven, it is carbon neutral and very quiet. It is designed so it can be used in many different industries but the majority of Looms are used for weaving the Famous Harris Tweed Fabric. The Bonas Griffith Harris Tweed Loom ( as it used to be known ) is now the work-horse of the Harris Tweed industry , being used by the majority of the 190 weavers currently working in the Outer Hebrides.
This Loom is a real joy to weave on when things are going well. If something is out of position by a few millimeters, trying to find what to adjust to get the loom working properly is the real skill of the weaver.
