Loom and Hand

More than just a textile shop Loom and Hand sells hand-woven textiles; pre-existing ones from inventories to combat dead-stock, over-consumption to ensure the movement of material and made-to-order artisanal ones to enable access to the extraordinary work from the looms and their mindful production value.

Loom & Hand is our textile shop for you to discover, explore and access handwoven textiles sourced and made by weavers across India. 

The good stuff - Here you can find Samples, or order ½ a metre of a textile and in other cases a 100 metres. We follow a transparent pricing system so you can see what you are paying for. 

Our textiles are categorised into Material Movement & Work the Loom. 

MATERIAL MOVEMENT

Here we list existing textiles from the inventories of Artisans + Makers. We encourage you to consider this as this allows for the movement of material from one to another instead to them being piled up.

Who We Are.

With experience that spans over a decade within the Clothing & Textile Industry, the team behind Loom & Hand understands the value of artisanal textiles and the need for its exchange within a safe space for both the maker and the buyer. 

In an era of shared resources and collaborations Loom & Hand hopes to be a forerunner in devising a new-age system of accessing handloom textiles.

With our ongoing work within the clothing industry, we felt the need to build an accessible platform of textiles for our fellow makers, enthusiasts, collectors, students and the ones who love to get their clothes and home-textiles tailor-made.

Our textiles are curated to focus on our interest in natural and breathable textiles woven with techniques new and old. We source and document inventory from our weavers to ensure their textiles are always finding a home while ensuring we can find them new opportunities to work their looms.

Our offering is ever-evolving, we keep adding and collecting to share as we move along inspired by travel, people, stories and conversations.

Here you may find textiles contemporary or vintage, a lot of some and too little of another, natural or coloured, rare or very common. You may find stock from inventories, fabrics that can only be made to order and sometimes a limited edition collectible. Feel free to get in touch for specifics and we look forward to taking you on this journey.
