New Pattern - Transit

Amy Tyson

This pattern is called Transit and it's a non directional take on our Pueblo pattern. The more dense arrow shapes create a interesting and dynamic horizontal stripe.

See below an older Pueblo sample with arrows going one direction. It's more of an all over pattern.

Introducing Tiger's Eye

Amy Tyson

Sometimes the best inspiration comes from what is already at hand. Here are the first couple of our new patterns which are fresh takes on older ideas. 

Tiger Eye is an adaption of a Lark Diamond design. We wanted to give it more of a tree bark or animal skin feeling. The unexpected and irregular shapes to add drama.

This is a chunkier weave than we've been doing lately. Lots of cushion.

Jasper Grey & other ideas

Amy Tyson

One of our first projects of the new year was these Jasper rugs. We wove this runner and small rug in a tonal grey color way. It's very elegant and soft in this color.

Twill Magic

Amy Tyson

We were lucky to get this custom color kitchen runner project. These are the color options that we created based on the client's color reference. We wove a red/beige dominant mix, a blue/beige dominant and option 3 is a dark mix that's heavy on browns. 

FW33. Options are good.

Twill makes a great texture. Here's a closeup of Option 2. The client went with Option 3 - most practical choice for a kitchen.
