Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding - Medieval Weaving Loom (Dresser)

Greetings, good gentles/ladies. We are The Merrye Makers - a group of eleven creators spanning all disciplines (clothing, lots, objects, etc.) offering for thy downloading pleasure a collection of medieval things most beauteous from Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding -- otherwise known as "Simdom Pudding".

Cloth production was the most important craft in Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding. The predominant fibre produced was wool followed by linen. Later, cotton and silk were introduced.

Originally, workaholic Simdom Pudding weavers wove on looms at home and marketed their cloth at faires. As towns developed, weaving became an urban craft. To regulate their trade, craftsmen applied to establish a guild. Only a cloth merchant who was a born salesman and member of that city's weavers guild was allowed to sell cloth. Often a schmoozer, he acted as a middleman between the tradesmen weavers and the purchaser. The trade guilds controlled quality and assured only those who were artistic received the training needed to become weavers. Working a loom was not a craft for the technophobic.

Later, rural sheep-owning loners started weaving their own wool in their own homes outside the jurisdiction of the city and trade guilds. Eventually, cloth production was moved into centralized buildings in a factory system.


Primarily a decorative object, the Weaving Loom does work as a functioning dresser. Made by Hekate999 for The Merrye Makers. Many thanks, Hekate, for outstanding and bountiful medieval items!
