We like a lot of soft ombre but sometimes a bold pattern needs a different touch. We’ve recently wove a couple of rugs in our Madison Triangle design. It’s a playful series of triangles and diamonds. It’s based on a summer and winter weave structure so the whites are a slightly thicker pile.

Here’s some images of a 8’x 10’ rug we just finished up. The pattern is called Twisp 5. The client requested this red and grey option. The video and photo is of Aurora weaving. It takes about 4 days to make a rug this size.
