COLLECTIONS OF RUGS AND TAPESTRIES
More than 1,200 years ago, the people of the American Southwest perfected the vertical loom and weaving techniques I use today. With finished selvage edges on all four sides of each piece, I can pack the weft yarn tightly so the rug will withstand hard wear on the floor.
I dye the wool yarns I use for weft with modern washfast, lightfast “acid” dyes (the acid is ordinary vinegar), which give me a wide range of rich and durable colors with the least possible environmental impacts.
I design my weavings with a view to their being used as rugs lying on the floor, but they can also be enjoyed hung on the wall.
