Give us your best Blue!

Amy Tyson

In the last few weeks, we made a couple of Columns rugs for clients. One is in a color we call Navy (the weavers were calling it Denim). The other is the Ink colorway. The Navy version has a warm grey column and a cool blue/ navy column. Note the icy colors against the warm greys.

Neutral color with Sophisticated pattern

One of our favorite patterns, Creswell, looks great in a lot of colorways. We created some new samples of this taupe color with extra fluffy white yarn and it sold right away! We wove this 12' x 12' custom rug for our friends at Lenos Ltd in Nashville.

Awesome Hike with Breathtaking Views!

Amy Tyson

Bellingham's most well known hike is called Oyster Dome. It's a couple of miles through the woods and up the mountain to several rocky cliffs. The cliffs overlook Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands. You can probably see Canada from there but I can't keep the different land masses straight. This hike is a must see if you are ever in Bellingham!
