Yes, people still use fabric looms, including traditional handlooms and modern power looms. Fabric looms are used to create various types of textiles, including:

  1. Clothing: Fabric looms are used to create the fabric for clothing items such as shirts, pants, dresses, and more.

  2. Home Textiles: They are used to produce fabric for items like bed sheets, curtains, and upholstery.

  3. Accessories: Fabric looms are used to make fabrics for accessories like scarves, ties, and handbags.

  4. Art and Decor: Some weavers use looms to create artistic textile pieces for wall hangings and decorations.

  5. Traditional and Cultural Items: In some cultures, fabric looms are still used to create traditional garments and cultural textiles.

The choice between handlooms and power looms depends on the scale of production and the level of craftsmanship desired. While many textiles are now mass-produced using power looms, handloom weaving continues to be valued for its artistic and cultural significance.
