About

Karen's story

I have been weaving for more 30 years and now own several looms, some old, some new. I live in the country in a 100 year old farmhouse with my husband of 45 years and look forward to frequent visits from my granddaughters.

All of my hand woven rag rugs are reversible and machine washable. They are woven with 50/50 poly & cotton rug warp which is nearly unbreakable, does not shrink, but still looks like the old-fashioned 100% cotton warp. I stitch the strips securely together so the ends will not come apart and poke out, even after years of using and washing the rug. The weft materials I use are recycled and washable, mostly cotton and cotton blends.

I have been making denim rugs using this same style/pattern for about 25 years so that a rug that you buy from me today will match a denim rug you bought from me in the past.

My rugs come to you from a smoke free and pet free home.

Feel free to ask questions through Etsy's message system or personal email. I love hearing from Etsy shoppers.
