Janet and Samina both trained as weavers at Huddersfield University before setting up Juko Designs.
Originally they wove fabric to their own designs on a power loom and used this fabric to make a range of handbags. However an increasing desire to introduce weaving to a wider audience following the resurgence in popularity of knitting and crochet led to the development of their weaving kits.
It was important that the kits should be simple to use to allow people to see that weaving doesn’t need expensive equipment or is too complicated to use. To achieve this the kits use either simple card looms or weaving sticks and come with comprehensive photo instructions.
These kits are are suitable for both children and adults and can be used by complete beginners or people with some experience of weaving.
