What is Lloyd Loom

Lloyd Loom is paper twisted and woven with paper wrapped wire, a process which was invented in 1917 as a more precise, robust alternative to wicker and cane.

Our history section covers the development of the process in great detail.

We also weave our own exclusive paper fabrics for a number of different applications in various patterns and colours in materials ranging from paper and steel to coloured papers and linen. All of our chairs are constructed from hardwood frames and are a world apart from conventional wicker furniture.

Where are you?

Our showroom and factory is located in Spalding, South Lincolnshire in the UK.

For full details visit our Contact page.

What about cushions and finishes?

All of our chairs without padded seats are available with cushions (except our contemporary range).

Those chairs and sofas that do not come with drop in seats can be supplied with 1 or 2 inch seat cushions (in our fabrics or your own!). For further details visit our accessories or fabric page.

All of our furniture requires finishing. Our products section explains the different finishes (Paints, Stains and Antiquing) and you must choose one of these for your furniture. Our contemporary Loomtex coloured furniture is finished in clear lacquer as standard.

Can I get a sample?

Of course! Please feel free to Contact us at the Spalding Showroom and request the colour/stain you require and the location you would like it sent to.

Is Lloyd Loom suitable for outdoors?

No, traditional Lloyd Loom material is made from twisted paper and wire and we believe it to be inherently unsuitable for outdoor use.

But we can help!

We do produce a range of Outdoor furniture, highly durable to any weather and unlike normal outdoor woven furniture, we have developed a new weave which includes the conventional Lloyd Loom internal wire Strand.

Far more durable that conventional synthetic fibres, our new outdoor material is suitable for use indoors and out – visit our outdoor

Care and Cleaning
  • Vacuum cleaning is a quick and efficient way to remove loose particles.
  • Stubborn or dried –on particles can be removed by using a soft brush (soft nail brush) then cleaned with a vacuum.
  • A damp cloth, NOT WATER –LADEN, may be used every so often to remove surface residue. The cloth should be of the non-dyed type as dyes can be transferred to the natural fibre.
  • In the event of a major spillage, lightly wipe the affected area with a dry cloth or kitchen towel immediately to remove excess, then allow chair to dry naturally. Never vigorously rub the woven fibre when wet.
  • Occasionally, the legs can be scuffed by footwear, these scuffs can be removed using a damp cloth and soapy water, do not over rub.
  • If the coated woven natural fibre is damaged and exposed, it is recommended that the area be re-coated using the touch-up pot supplied and a small paint brush to re-seal the damaged area.
  • Do not leave or store outside in a damp atmosphere.
  • Do not use cleaning solvents/stain removers or chemicals, as they will harm the natural fibre.
  • Do not soak whilst cleaning
