This is probably a very silly question, but I am going to reveal my ignorance anyway :)
I am very interested in weaving ribbons to make towel hangers, xmas gift wrappings, shoe laces etc.
I am seeing a lot of pattern drafts out there for inkle looms/tablet weaving/rigid heddle weaving/backstrap, etc., but am I right that these bands are mostly warp facing designs in either plain weave or twill? They can basically be done on any floor loom and that I don't need specialized equipment? I recognize that the floor loom might be a bit "overkill" for a narrow band, but I would rather not buy equipment if I don't have to.
If you do weave narrow bands, I am curious about your equipment strategy. Do you have specialized equipment or do you weave them on floor/table looms?
