Paper and steel: that's all it is!
Lloyd Loom weave is made from twisted Kraft paper on the one hand, and Kraft paper spun around a steel wire on the other hand. With just the twisted paper as the warp and the steel and paper combination as the weft, Lloyd Loom is produced on rolls in just the same way as textiles. The Loom sheets are submerged in a bath of glue to ensure the firmness and are then cut to the proper size.
Subsequently, our highly skilled craftsmen shape and staple the loom sheets to the rattan or wooden furniture frames by hand, thus producing a smooth and attractive finish that will, unlike normal wicker, not snag clothing or skin.
Finally, each piece of furniture is painted in any of the Vincent Sheppard loom colours.
