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 & What it Means -
Here we list textiles existing textiles from the inventories of Artisans and Makers and we encourage you to consider this! See what’s available to fits your need. This allows the movement of material from one to another when the material stock has piled up and may or may not be needed in the same way.
1. Weavers | Stock-To-Go
<Shop By the Metre from the inventory of the weavers. These can be made again in most cases if you could work with our weavers minimum order requirements>
2. Makers | Stock-To-Go
<Shop By the Metre from Stock available in the inventory of makers such as clothing/ textile/ home furnishing designers. Consider these pre-loved and ready to find their new home. All textiles here are one-offs.>
3. Limited Edition | Collectibles
<Those One-Off Incredible ones that we just happened to chance upon. The ones that the weaver isn't going to weave more of!>
WORK THE LOOM & What it Means -
Here we list Artisanal Textiles for you to place orders for. This is so important to ensure the looms keep weaving.
<Minimums differ from weaver to weaver based off their requirements from 25m to 100m. The time line for these too vary between 30-60 days. Good things take time>
2. Wholesale + Possibilities
<Always happy to work on larger orders based on your requirements. You can purchase up to 100m on the web shop. Get in touch for any requirenents beyond that>
So material moves around and can be accessed by who needs it, (no matter what its quantity), and isn't reduced to just being left to eventually become dead-stock.

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 collaboration 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 fabrics are focussed around our interest in natural and breathable textiles woven with techniques new and old. 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 and some maybe limited editions.
