Stephanie Hoppe Handwoven Rugs




RED  SQUARED

Wool warp, hand-dyed wool weft
28 by 40 inches, $1,000


The diagonal 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 makes for a very thick dense, durable  textile, often used for saddle blankets, but very suitable for rugs as well.

With its multiple shades of red, ranging from purplish at one end to orange-brown at the other, this rug can warm the coldest room and season.
