The Toika Jaana Countermarch Loom is available in weaving widths of 80cm and 100cm (approx. 31 1/2″, 39 3/8″).
The Jaana has been designed as a compact and small countermarch loom when for when space is limited, a small or second loom is required. Supplied with a standing beater and standard Laila bench. Due to the smaller frame it is not possible to fit the warp tension system to a Jaana but she can be equipped with other additions such as a second and or sectional beam, additional treadles and hanging beater.
You can also visit ourToika Loom Studio to see and try Toika table and floor looms. We have Laila set up with a top of the lamms tie up, Jaana and Eeva both with ES electronic systems as well as Leena and Siru, Toika’s table and rigid heddle looms. No obligation visits are very welcome by appointment only. We are based in Lutterworth Leicestershire close to Junction 19 of the M1 and Junction 1 of the M6. Please get in touch to arrange visit. We look forward to seeing you.
Toika looms are made from beautiful Finnish Birch. This hardwood is air and kiln dried before being made into looms. The countermarch tie up gives a large shed with light treadling regardless of the tie up without the need for elaborate engineering. The side pieces of the Jaana are built in the factory and supplied in one piece. The loom is delivered in a plywood crate to accommodate this and ensures the loom arrives without damage. The simple and traditional construction of the looms means they are straightforward to build, exceptionally sturdy, and capable of weaving anything from fine lace to sturdy rugs and everything in between.
Traditional style looms like Jaana can also be tied up in the less traditional way to allow changing of the tie up to be made from the lamms rather than the treadles. This eliminates a good deal of the crawling under the loom that is required to change the tie up on other types of floor looms. If you would like information on this method ask us when you order your loom.

Additional warping and weaving equipment as listed in the Toika cataloguehttps://shop.toika.com/files/Toika-Catalogue-2019.pdf. This downloadable catalogue also contains diagrams and measurements of all of the Toika floor looms on this website.
Please note additional equipment ordered with looms is unlikely to increase shippings costs significantly, if at all as there is usually space in the crate. Items ordered separately will incur additional shipping charges, we will notify you of these before you place an order.
All Floor loom prices are based on an average of Euro to Pound rates. Prices are confirmed when you are ready to place your order.
We think it is very important to discuss your requirements with you before you place an order and will be in touch with you when we receive your quote request.
Toika looms are made to order and always to the customers specification. Manufacturing takes place throughout the year. The quote will be adjusted to your requirements once we have spoken with you to establish your exact requirements. The crate, delivery and insurance are also included in the price. Delivery is usually between 6-12 weeks from the date of order confirmation.
Jaana can also be supplied with the Toika ES electronic dobby system, instead of a countermarch and treadles. More information is available on this in the descriptions of these looms. An older countermarch Jaana loom can often be converted to accommodate the 16 shaft ES system at a later date if required. Please enquire with details of your loom for more information.
