WAIST LOOM,THE TECHNIQUE USED IN THIS TABLE RUNNER The waist loom is a very old technique used by Mesoamerican cultures. At present, artisans continue to use this technique to make some of the pieces they use for their clothing as well as items and accessories for the home. This technique used in some communities of Oaxaca and Chiapas, consists of intertwining threads of any type of fiber in a wooden loom, tying them to a pole or tree on one side and to the waist of the craftsman on the other; and interconnecting perpendicularly other threads with chopsticks to give the finish to the weft of the fabric.

Unfortunately, these ancestral techniques have been replicated with machines, removing the human element, in such a way that their production is greater in a shorter time. Naturally, this has repercussions for the original producers, creators of these crafts, because it is impossible to compete with the prices generated by cheap production.
