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.

Give us your best Blue!

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.

Below we have Michelle weaving the Columns Ink. This one is much warmer and more dramatic. Since we are a custom shop, we can make whatever blue you like!

Go Bold

Amy Tyson

We recently worked on this Kitchen Runner project for Stark Carpet in San Francisco. Californians have great taste. Such a pleasure to weave such a bold rug. It will really envigorate the space.

Here is the group of finished runners on our shop floor. They will look fantastic on a wood floor.

We've also made this in a lovely blue color. Not as dramatic as the red version but still a strong statement. This one also has a subtle touch of mint chenille for sparkle.
