THE WORKS IN LOOM


The making of a cloth supposes the previous knowledge of the fixation techniques and classification of the threads. It is required of an apparatus called special loom, where some fixed threads - the warps - they are framed by movable threads - the plots -, so on the whole they end up constituting a canvas. Of the pressure of the one fixed of the plots it will depend the rigidity or ease of the cloth; their fineness will depend on the grosor and quality of the threads and in the way like these combine to each other.

Three types of prehispanic looms existed: the waist loom, the horizontal loom and the vertical loom, in this case will appreciate a waist loom.
