Is a Mirrix Worth The Price?
One question we get quite a lot about our looms is “Why are they so expensive?” The answer has to do with material costs (a Mirrix is built to last a lifetime) and labor costs (Mirrix Looms are built in the U.S.A. at a facility that provides supported employment for people with mental and physical disabilities instead of being made overseas), but we decided to ask real Mirrix customers why they think a Mirrix is worth the price.
“I think the more experience you have weaving, the easier it is to understand the value of a Mirrix. Hours of warping, endless tension adjustments, paying hundreds of dollars for reeds, backaches from bending to thread and weave–all of the frustrations of weaving on other looms fade, and the joy of hand-making with color in fiber and beads blooms! Mirrix looms make weaving fun and easy. I’ve used frame looms, rigid heddle, table looms, floor looms, inkle looms, band looms, tapestry looms. Now I have one: the Mirrix.” -Jennifer Barrett
“They are worth every penny you pay for them. As the mother of two disabled adult children who work in a sheltered workshop, I appreciate that Mirrix feels strongly enough about their ability to do quality work and allows them to build these great looms. We recently went on a weekend camping trip, so naturally I had to bring one of my Mirrix looms. When we got ready to leave I loaded mine in it’s bag and put it in the back of my SUV. When I got home I found that my son had loaded an ice chest and 2 heavy lounge chairs on top of it. I’m happy to report my Mirrix came though it just fine. That’s how well built they are.” Lezlie Russell
