Stephanie Hoppe Handwoven Rugs



NIGHT LIFE

Wool warp, hand-dyed wool weft
35 by 54 inches, $4,000


The overall twill pattern in this rug is "loom controlled," a Navajo technique that yields a very thick dense textile. I have varied the effects of the patterning, creating the flowing, organic shapes, both by shifting the pattern between diamonds and waves and by manipulating the weft colors as I weave.
