Inkle

Inkle looms are primarily used to weave bands. Though they have a narrow weaving width, you can create extensive designs and patterns with an inkle loom. Use inkle-woven bands on their own as straps, hatbands, and belts or trim a larger woven piece or garment. You can even sew bands together to create thick and durable fabric.
