Rug Loom

Professional Dobby Rug Loom

The AVL Professional Dobby Rug Loom is the ultimate heavy-duty loom, with precision engineering for rug weavers who need AVL-style responsiveness and sweeping versatility.


To provide maximum AVL performance, the Professional Dobby Rug Loom combines the design flexibility of the AVL dobby with high tech features such as an air-powered shed and a rugged sliding beater.

The Professional Dobby Rug Loom also features extra-sturdy construction with over-sized kiln-dried hardwood members on the smaller (under 8 foot) looms, and steel on the larger units. On all looms, all rollers and warp beams are steel and the beater is reinforced with steel as well.

Our largest loom, the 20 foot Professional Dobby Rug Loom (Click Here for pictures) features oversized steel members that carry the load like no other. But, it is the special components created specifically for the demands of rug weaving that make AVL's Dobby Rug Loom an exceptional value:
