This year we chose the 15 Peg Straight Loom for our 10th Anniversary Heirloom Edition Loom. The straight loom was the first Kiss Loom made 10 years ago and for this special anniversary it seemed fitting to honor our first loom. The 15 Peg Straight Loom is available in Bocote, an exotic wood native to Mexico, Central America, and the West Indies. It features a wide range of grain patterns from straight to wild, with curved lines and swirls. The color ranges from golden brown to tan to golden yellow. Wood color and grain will vary with loom, and the color will change over time.
This very special line of Kiss Looms is all about the look with the same great functionality. This limited edition 10th Anniversary Loom is only available in our 15 Peg Straight Loom.
For the month of August 2017 we will take orders for this loom made in Bocote. After August, the looms will be listed on the site with the quantity available for each style. Other wood types and colors will be available from time to time in limited numbers.
Another thing that's special about the Heirloom Edition is that 10% of the profits will be donated to the Mercy House Kenya. The people of Mercy House work to get young pregnant girls out of the slums of Kenya and into an environment of love, learning, and hope. I have read about the Mercy House over the past several years and have begun to hold a special place in my heart for the work they are doing. I believe we can help make a difference for these girls by giving them a chance to change their futures.
The Mercy House exists to provide alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of Kenya. The Mercy House will aid them in education, nutrition, housing, prenatal care, Bible study, counseling and job skills for sustainable living.
I hope you will take the time to watch the video on their home page for more information about how Mercy House started and all the wonderful work they are doing. http://mercyhousekenya.org/ Thank you for supporting Kiss Looms and girls in need across the globe. Together we can make a difference.
