Currently drop shipping looms from Japan directly to you is NOT an option. Although we hope to be able to offer this again in the future, we have no time estimates on when that might be possible.

The elegant style of the Saori CH60 loom and the accessibility of the CH60A-2 make these very popular models.

At Handmade Saori, we pride ourselves on our customer support. When you buy a SAORI loom from us, we happily provide email and phone support to help you with any issues or questions you may have with your loom.

Drop Ship looms will ship directly to you from the manufacturer in Japan. There is no shipping charge for drop ship looms. Looms are built when ordered and will typically take 4-6 weeks to arrive.

Immediate Shipment looms are in stock and ready for local pick-up or will ship to you from our location in Belton, TX (shipping charges will apply).


The Saori CH60 is made of high quality Japanese cherry wood.


  • Built-in bobbin winder and shelf

  • The location of the cloth beam allows for storage of a large amount of cloth
  • Wire heddles have large holes to make threading easier
  • A ready made warp is setup on the loom so that you can start weaving right away

CH60A-2 Model (Accessible)

The CH60A-2 loom is wheelchair accessible and height adjustable. It has all the features of the SAORI CH60; however, the wooden pedal beam is replaced by a flat adjustable metal brace. This lets a weaver in a wheelchair roll in close to the loom. The brace also has 5 height settings, allowing you to raise the loom up to 12.5 cm (4.9") from the floor. This is helpful for taller weavers as well! By adding optional accessories such as the Shuttle Shelf or the Hand Switcher, you can upgrade the SAORI CH60A-2 into a universal loom accessible by people with differing abilities.

1 review for SAORI CH60

  1. Meg

    At some point, almost every fiber fanatic finds they want another piece of equipment. I wanted a second loom so I could convert my SX60H to a 4 harness loom. The CH60 was my choice for loom number two and I love it. I have reached the point in my life where I can’t easily get on the floor. The back warp beam of the CH60 being at waist height makes warping, already an easy experience thanks to SAORI innovations, even easier for me. It does have a shallower weaving depth, but that doesn’t bother me. The warp brake is easy to access, so advancing the warp more frequently is not inconvenient at all.
