Loom is a unique, woven material that consists of twisted Kraft paper reinforced with steel wire. It emerged in the 1930s as the ultimate in upscale, durable style and is enjoying a resurgence as consumers move away from synthetic imitations. Loom is smooth to the touch and doesn't feature any sharp points that could snag clothing. Loom furniture is remarkably strong and durable, and does not bend, distort or creak. The Loom collection features loom-weave fabric on our signature rattan frames.
