Weaving braids is fun. People have been using inkle looms and back-strap looms, for centuries, and still do for many countries around the world.
Inkle braids can be used for luggage straps, belts, braces, even towropes! Braids may be sewn together to make items such as bags, scarfs and hats, and wall hangings.
