The world's most advanced handloom for complex weaving.

So you’re a complex weaver? Great! Then you value equipment that gives you precision over your creativity without causing distractions. You also appreciate ergonomic design and intuitive interfaces that let you maintain focus on what’s most important - your art.

Honoring AVL’s tradition of innovation, the K-Series introduces new and improved technologies and design that offer unmatched creative potential. For the first time treadling 40 shafts is not just made possible, it’s made easy. Warp movement works with you as you weave, and adjustments come with the tap of a button. Connecting your laptop, tablet, or phone is straightforward and instant. Technology assists where it needs to, and the weavers’ touch is left to shine.
