    Is This Rigid Enough?

    I do not know, I’m not a professional weaver. But this looks rigid enough.

    How many kits of the children’s loom do you usually sell per year?

    I sold 30 to 40 of them before the Christmas.

    Do you think there is a market for this product in the US market?

    Yes, I think there is a market for the product.

    Any Suggestions?

    Online is better, market it online.
    Close to the summer, around June or July out company will establish a brand called ”School Products”. Talked to me about your product than, I will be able to sell it in my store.

    Yes.

    We currently do not sell weaving supplies.

    Do you think there is a market for this product in the US market?

    Yes, I believe it would be a niche market.

    Any Suggestions?

    The loom might need to be bigger. It seems small even for small hands.

    The loom should have much brighter color. Should demonstrate now it works (video, pictures) Should show the result of what you can get out of it. Show it!


    Loop of the Loom - happy weaving

    YUKAKO SATONE executive director SAORI certified instructor

    The program of Ka-viaz is really like SAORI. SAORI was established by Misao Jo. She started weaving when she was 57 years old. She created her own loom and style, free from the express oneself freely regardless of age, gender, disability or intellectual aptitude. In SAORI Weaving, we try not to imitate machine-made products, and we always try to do what only human beings can do. No two weaving are alike. In Japan, intellectual disability people did not get any fund from the government, that means they have to earn income by themselves. SAORI helped them established new skills. Some people even became teachers of their own and teach other ordinary people. I think Ka-viaz program is good, but you need to think a little bit more. ¬¬
