Possible cardboard loom technique

I found this auction on ebay for a magazine article:

Its to make 12 inch square carpet tiles to make a South American style carpet. The cover photo shows a backstrap loom and there is also a photo of a man at a wooden floor loom, but from the diagram it appears to really be about weaving a carpet square on a cardboard loom, with a strange set up involving  a serrated edge to hold the warp threads and sticks/wooden bars placed through the warp at intervals.

Anyone any thoughts on this?

 Caroline...

This is very interesting.  I don't see the relationship between the backstrap loom and the diagram.  Perhaps there were other articles in the booklet too. Are you going to order the booklet and get a closer look?

Its already sold, grrrr! Perhaps the buyer may come on here looking for help, because that diagram bore no relation whatsoever to a cardboard loom, a backstrap loom or a regular loom! Its not something I've come across before, but I'll recheck some of my off-loom weaving books.

 If looking for something written about weaving on cardboard, I remember an article published in Spin Off magazine a few years, maybe 2 years ago, about weaving around a cardboard box in order to make a bag..  Pretty nifty, with good instructions.

Anybody with a subscription can check it out.  Or maybe check the back issues.. 

And, I also do miss the Ravelry buttons under postings.
