Perfect for making wall tapestries. This is great to take out to the park and weave against a tree or prop up on a table at home and sit back in a chair. It can hold thick or thin media as shown. The smooth surface will not create marks on your forearms and wrists as many looms may with nails or posts so you can reach freely. It is easy to store on a flat wall and can be pulled back out when you're ready to weave. It is held together by 12 screws, with 8 in the front and 4 in the back. It is sturdy and easy to assemble once shipped.
