About the Author

About Harumi Kageyama

Harumi Kageyama graduated in art and design at the Nihon University College in Japan. After initially pursuing an editorial career, working for magazines and journals in a mixture of fields, Harumi decided to return to her first love and began designing and making handcrafted items in cloth, wires and more. Her work focuses on simple materials such as wool, fabric and driftwood, and she places great value on designs that are simple and sustainably sourced.

Harumi now writes a successful blog in Japan and runs regular workshops on weaving and other crafts. She is also the author of several textile and handmade, eco-friendly interior design books published in Japan, and her work is slowly becoming recognized worldwide.

Harumi lives in Osaka, Japan.

When I was a child I made a loom out of an old picture frame, and wove an Alice band on it. This innovative book shows how you can weave all kinds of small items on looms made from boxes, cardboard tubes, wooden boards, twigs or just card.

Anybody who regularly reads my reviews will know I am always looking for new ways of recycling things, and here is a good one. Weave outside using yarn and twigs, cut out card circles, roll up card or hammer nails into wooden boxes or (like me) old frames. With a table fork for a beater, crochet hook and tapestry needle, hammer and nails you will probably be able to make any of the looms, all of which are so simple to make that instructions are kept to a minimum. There are plenty of clear photographic steps to stringing the looms, weaving and finishing off, and of course projects. Cover buttons, weave mats, create jewellery, wall hangings, napkin rings, wallets, bunting and more (no Alice bands). My favourites have to be the tote bag and matching clutch purse, showing that you can do a lot with a little. The threads used include all kinds of yarns but also ribbons, strips of suede and even chenilles (pipe cleaners). The projects have clear diagrams and instructions; if you are new to this sort of thing I advise starting with the simpler looms and items first. Recycling has never been so much fun!
