Talara Now in Navy

Angela Boyle

Not everyone wants a rectangular rug. But the basic woven stucture is a grid and looms are designed to create rectangles. So sometimes we ship out rugs without seeing the final product. Rugs are sent to a workroom with excellent cutting and binding skills. These are sent as rectangles only to be reborn as circles before they reach their final destination.

We just finished a Talara rug in a Navy Stripe for cutting and binding. Talara is a large, dramatic rug, but the soft waves of the pattern will be reflected in the shape after it is cut down to a circle. After cutting the rug to shape, they will use the same background colors to bind the edge.

Talara is a thin flat weave rug with a sophisticated tribal pattern. The blue and white colors of this rug pull back on the tribal feel and highlight the geometric pattern. The ombre blues soften the background against the diagonal pattern lines. In the past, we’ve woven a runner in cherry wood, and we’re doing five more custom runners in the cherry wood color next month.
