Maximize Your Downtime: The Boomloom Revolutionizes Portable Weaving

Turn Spare Moments into Creative Sessions

Whether you're idling at the bank, enduring a lengthy commute, or caught between meetings, the temptation to scroll endlessly through our smartphones is all too familiar. However, for those seeking a more fulfilling use of time, traditional activities like journaling, reading, or engaging in arts and crafts offer a rewarding alternative. And for the aspiring weavers among us constrained by space, a new compact and portable loom presents an innovative solution.

Meet the Boomloom: Weaving Made Accessible

Envisioned by designer Lauren Puchowski, the boomloom emerged during the pandemic as a portable loom catering to both beginners and seasoned weavers. Puchowski's aim was to transform weaving into an activity that's intuitive, expressive, and most importantly, accessible. This nifty device may appear toy-like, but it's a fully functional tool capable of producing intricate patches, sketches, and design samples.

Choose Your Size: Medium or Mini

Available in two sizes, medium and mini, the boomloom offers versatility for those on the move. Crafted from a combination of aluminum, beech, and maple, its assembly eschews the need for screws or fasteners, making it surprisingly user-friendly. Even those with no prior loom experience will find the turning knobs and automatic warp thread movement a breeze to use.

Designed for Convenience and Creativity

With hidden tabs for precise stopping and slits to secure yarn, the boomloom is designed for convenience. Its compact size allows for weaving within the palms of your hands, on your lap, or atop any table, ensuring your creative endeavors never miss a beat.

From Designer's Workspace to Worldwide Availability

While still awaiting patent approval, the boomloom is assembled in Puchowski's studio and has reached a global audience. It's not just an online sensation; the innovative loom has also found a retail home at the Cooper Hewitt Museum Shop, located in the historical Andrew Carnegie Mansion in New York, bringing traditional weaving into the modern age.
