Tape looms have been popular for centuries, before snaps, and zippers were made, people made tapes as an inexpensive way to close shoes, clothing or anything that needed a closure. 
These looms were small and portable and were used to weave these tapes Even children learned to weave on tape and paddle looms because they were simple to operate and an great introduction to weaving.
Today weavers all over the world still use tape looms.
