38″ Zeus Loom
38″ Zeus Loom
The Zeus Loom is the largest Mirrix Loom available. It can make a piece 35″ x 61″ and can easily be transformed into a floor loom by adding a stand and treadle.
This is as big as a portable Mirrix Loom gets. Inspired by a customer who wanted a big enough loom to weave a standard Navajo size rug, we designed this loom for those of you who think big. Engineered just like the 32 inch loom, the 38 inch loom will satisfy those of you who really wanted a floor loom but could not justify the expense or give up all that space to house it. On this 38 inch wide loom you can weave a piece 35 inches wide and 61 inches long.
The Zeus Loom comes with a great story. He exists because a customer, who had been weaving on a traditional Navajo loom, called me up to ask if we had a loom that could accommodate a weaving larger than what could be made on a Joni Loom. She wanted to transfer her piece off the Navajo loom and onto a Mirrix. It was just crazy enough that I wanted to be part of this. I told her I would have manufacturing make two 38 inch wide looms and I would have one sent to her and one sent to me. If we both thought the loom was viable, she would be obligated to buy it. We then figured out a way for her to transfer her weaving onto the Mirrix. She received the loom, she loved the loom and she transferred her weaving onto it and finished it without a hitch. That was one happy customer. Since then many customers have enjoyed the size of this loom that has the consideration to produce large tapestries while not taking over your studio.

Accessories: You need heddles to use the shedding device. You can either buy them or make your own (click the heddles tab for more information). You may want the Extra Warping Bar Kit to save warp thread or the Bottom Spring Kit with warp coils for wider pieces. If you want some extra space between your front and back warp threads, the Add-On Bottom Beam is a great addition.
