And the French word for loom is 'métier'. My French is not impeccable but I would say: a dobby loom is in French: 'un métier à ratière'?
To reply privately send message to: ederuiter@...
pair of pillowcases were described as being woven on a "ratiere loom" . . .
. . . Peter Straus, from AVL Looms, was quick to pass along that
"ratiere" is French for "dobby"
Ah well . . . back to weaving on my ratiere loom
