The rugs pictured in this
section are all brand new never been walked on original
designs. They are one of a kind with my label attached.
I personally design and meticulously make every
rug that I sell and I do it the old fashioned way
60 wide bolts of heavier wool material are
cut into 4 wide strips, sewn end-to-end and braided into triple-strand
braids. My unique methods result in braids that are wider and thicker
and the rugs more luxurious than most of the hand made rugs
that are actually machine made.
The resulting rugs are approximately ¾
to 1 thick and solid as a rock. They will never buckle or slide
and slip around on the floor.
They are not sewn, but laced, and will never come
apart. The lacing is all hidden! I have rugs out there that I made 60
years ago that are still lovely.
In addition, there are no visible seams or lacing
thread and the last three to four rows are each spliced into a continuous
necklace with no visible beginning or end. The actual end taper is buried
three to four rows in.
Each of these originals has a description of the
colors and materials that went into it as well as interesting construction
statistics. Note that material colors in the pictures will display differently
depending on individual computer monitors.
