Warmth in a Wine Cellar

Angela Boyle

We recently completed one of our largest rugs to date, clocking in at 34 feet long and dominating the shop. This dark, charcoal rug was for a winery in Sonoma. The rich, deep colors are reminiscent of oak casks and wine cellars.

This beautiful and subtle Columns rug is great for an urban/contemporary space. And these neutral colors can absorb a lot of wine. The rug would look fantastic with a little added merlot. (Though we hope there aren't too many accidents.)

Columns, our most durable construction, is awesome and versatile. With a variety of ways to organize the colors, it can match any environment. We were weaving this for 10 days. It was a team effort. 

 Look at that length! Dominating the shop, indeed.

If 34 feet isn't impressive enough, the final rug weighed in at over 200 lbs. It is a person unto itself!

Pink for Nursery

Amy Tyson

We recently wove this custom Twisp 5 for a nursery project in New York. We had a cone of pink yarn that we've been holding on to for a while for exactly this opportunity. To keep it from being too pink, we wove a sample option with pink and white stripes and that's what the client decided on.

Here's a video of Meg weaving. The pattern is the computer. So as she using the foot pedals to open and close the shed, the computer knows to advance to the next row. This rug is over 11' wide.

Striped Action

We can do stripes. 

We've been working on these custom runners, based on a gold sample from our predecessor, Lark Textile.

We wove a few options, mixing all kinds of shades. But they like #1, minus the bright blue.
