How to Make an Entrance

We recently had a chance to make this stunning entry rug for Colleen Knowles Interior Design.

The client wanted a thinner version to clear the door. This also created a sleeker look. See options above.

It’s the first rug we have woven on our new 10’ loom, “Suzy”.

Dotted Lines

We just finished this l 12' x 18' for Tapis & Decor in Minneapolis. We started with a Photoshop rendering to show how stripes would look on the full size rug.

In the photo below, you can see the rendering taped to the loom. This is how the weavers keep track of the stripes to create  controlled variation and rhythm in width. Although I planned the blend of yellow creams and pale greys in the "white" section in the sample, I didn't expect it to be so pretty in the room size rug.
