We define and study the category of symmetric sl2-webs. This category is
a combinatorial description of the category of all finite dimensional quantum
sl2-modules. Explicitly, we show that (the additive closure of) the symmetric sl2-spider is (braided monoidally) equivalent to the latter.
Our main tool is a quantum version of symmetric Howe duality.
As a corollary of our construction, we provide new insight into Jones-Wenzl projectors and the colored Jones polynomials.
