Easy projects with only 2 treadles

See our beautiful towel warps from 2016 below. These warps come and go so fast that we are not able to promise any particular color at any given time. We assure you that all of our towel warps are beautiful and equally fun to weave on!

Whether you have ever woven before or not, indulge yourself with a day at Vävstuga. We welcome you to come and weave on one of our sturdy Swedish looms to make something beautiful in an inspirational environment.
