- The backstrap loom, in which one end was tied to a tree or pole and the other end was tied to a belt that went round the body of the weaver. The weaver usually sat on the ground to weave. (Also called waist loom)
- The horizontal loom, in which used wooden supports at each end that were driven into the ground. The weaver usually knelt in front of the loom.
- The vertical loom in which the top end of the loom hung from a support driven into the wall, and was kept tense by means of weights that hung from the bottom end. The weaver usually worked standing up in front of the loom.
