Beautiful browns. We recenly made a 9’5” x 9’8” custom rug for a client in California in our Amphora pattern. It has a natural bark feeling but we wove it with soft wool.

In recent weeks, I traveled to several showrooms around the country and everyone wants green.
Currently, we’re working on this custom project for a den in house near Lake Tahoe and I think they are ahead of the trend. I especially appreciate the call for a little terra cotta color to play off the multitudes of green.
This rug is 12’ wide by 26’ long. With a project that big, teamwork is essential. All the weavers had to work a day or two on this rug for a total of 12 days of weaving! That’s before you even get to finishing and backing.
We always have a sense of pride when we ship the finished piece to it’s new home.
Sophisticated Runners Add Dazzle
We just finished a couple of runners that are Blink Cinder. Blink pattern is really great for adding some crazy colorful colors to a neutral base. We try to work in a pop of red wherever we can.
Here’s Angela weaving one of the runners. She weaves a few rows (picks) of neutral and then a pick of the “dots”. The computer in the background is set to the pattern so when she works the foot pedal it just rotates to the next combination of harnesses and lifted warp yarns.
The finished runners have a subtle, random pattern. Sometimes the red dots dominate, sometimes black, sometimes neutral so the pattern will disappear in patches.
