Purl & Loop

Purl & Loop® specializes in the production of weaving products serving the fiber arts industry. Purl & Loop® is the creator the patented Swatch Maker 3-in-1 weaving looms in addition to a variety of other handheld portable looms and accessories. The Purl & Loop® studio workshop is housed in an East Downtown (EaDo) within an artist community. It is here where all our products are created, assembled and hand finished. Our trusty laser cutting machine cranks out all of our creative ideas and allows us to adapt quickly to manufacturing demands. The materials we use for our products are sourced from Houston based businesses whenever possible or purchased from U.S. and other North American suppliers. Our products are available to the public via our website and they can also be found in independent quilting, yarn and weaving shops across the country.

Seven people and two dogs staff our small studio workshop. All human staff is paid a living wage and canine staff receives deluxe housing and organic food and treats. Our human staff all work for Purl & Loop part time and your support for our business enables them to help support a growing family, purchase their first home (after 20 years of renting an apartment), pay for college tuition and fund creative dreams. Our longest serving team member is Audrey Pearl, our canine studio assistant. Our other beloved canine studio assistant, Hank, retired from Purl & Loop in August 2017 and sadly passed away in April 2018. Hank and Audrey Pearl served as loyal companions to Angela when she operated from her 120 sq ft home studio and they accompanied her when she moved to her first tiny studio at Art Square Studios in Houston. They were thrilled when Purl & Loop expanded into one of the largest, 2 room studio spaces at Art Square Studios in January 2016.
