Stephanie Hoppe Handwoven Rugs


Wool warp, hand-dyed wool weft
40 by 45 inches, $1,500

The overall "wave" patterns in this rug are "loom controlled," that is to say, the setup of the loom yields the pattern as one weaves row by row.
It is a Navajo technique that yields a very thick dense, durable  textile, often used for saddle blankets, but very suitable for rugs as well.
