I was concerned about assembly after reading reviews, but between the instruction booklet and the YouTube video, it was really quite easy. I did not give it 5 stars as the weaving info is not nearly as good as the weaving info I received with my Kromski and two Ashfords.

Schacht has thoughtfully designed the Arras Tapestry Loom to embrace the old traditions of tapestry weaving with a modern twist as the timeless craft grows in popularity. Function, aesthetics, and comfort create a sturdy loom that is a joy to weave on for both experienced and new weavers. The Arras is solid maple, ergonomically designed loom with a 20" weaving length, and is easily adjustable to fit your specific needs.
The durable structure of the loom will withstand the rigors of tapestry weaving over time, and like all the Schacht products you love, the Arras is friendly, inviting, and designed for function. Compact and easy to transport at only 10 lbs, you will love taking your weaving on the go with this new thoughtfully designed loom from Schacht.
