handwoven eco-friendly rugs
Using two antique floor looms, I weave eco-friendly rugs from recycled Pendleton Mills wool selvage (the raw edges trimmed from Pendleton blankets) and cotton warp. The Pendleton wool gives my rugs striking and dynamic color combinations, and the wool’s textures produce a rich, luxurious feel. Drawing from my background in sculpture, painting, graphic arts, and textiles, I blend a colorful, modern aesthetic with the traditional art of hand-weaving. I love sharing the process and joy of my craft; and making something of beauty for others is deeply satisfying.
