Here I have a very colorful and lively rug. I think I was influenced by the drive to go and get some ice cream while planning this rug. It is made from strip of bright orange, pink and green with a little flowered print thrown in to tie it all together. The fabric is all cotton. Between each row of fabric is a pale pink linen yarn - subtle and pretty. The rugs come from a smoke-free and pet friendly home. I can ship almost anywhere - let me know if I can add your location.

GREEN!
Please note - all my rugs are made out of recycled fabric. I buy in bulk, launder them well and off we go on the weaving process! It was the thing that drove me to weaving rugs. Only the warp yarn is new. I love the idea that someone gave these away and they came to another beautiful use.

Custom Rugs
It is difficult to get it all just right for you without offering a custom option. If you like this pattern I will make a similar one for you. My rugs are one of a kind but if you like the idea we can work together to get a rug you love. If you like this pattern but want it in a different size you can email me and we get it in the works.

How to Launder My Rugs
I recommend minimal laundering but when you have to, use a gentle cycle in cold water and dry flat. I hose mine off when weather permits and let them dry flat. To lengthen the life I think it is best to shake out these rugs holding the length not the width.

How I Make My Rugs
All of my rugs are made with bias cut strips of fabric which allows them to be more durable and flexible than other methods. It also eliminates all the strings/threads you can see on some rugs - just a little bias fluff sometimes visible on mine. I use laundered re-cycled sheets and tablecloths in a wide range of color. They are all hand-woven by me on a 36" Kessenich floor loom. My goal is to only use natural fibers so the fabric in the rugs is nearly always 100% cotton. The only exception might be a spectacular color that is only available with a little man-made fiber in the content. I never go higher than 50/50. My loom is 36" wide so that is the limit of the width but length is no issue - or almost no issue (no 100' rugs). The warps are usually cotton.
