Lavender Handwoven Rug

$ 300.00

Who knew a handwoven could be this durable? Made from wonderfully resilient linen and cotton, our tabby weave rugs are designed to stand up to high foot traffic and frequent washing. A harmonious blend of lavender and bleached white make this a soft and beautiful way to make a first impression at the entry to your home.

2' W x 3' L

70% Cotton 30% Linen

Machine wash cold on delicate cycle & line dry. Some shrinkage is expected. Give your rug a tug once dry to stretch it back to its original size.

Crafted by hand from start to finish in our Main Street weaving studio.

Our masterful artisans begin by thoughtfully selecting colors and fibers inspired by our surrounding landscape, then determine a pattern and desired weave structure for their design.

Next, they wind the fiber onto bobbins then wind the loom’s warp, a meticulously calculated process that sets the path of each and every thread used. These threads are manually connected to specific harnesses and securely hand-tied to “dress the loom”. Once this stage is complete, they can begin to weave.

Countless passes of the shuttle commence, rhythmic, muted sounds of wooden pedals fill the studio, and a beautiful textile begins to emerge. The handwoven process continues until the piece reaches its full length, at which point it is cut from the loom. Tassels are hand-knotted onto the ends, and a small label is hand-sewn onto the textile as the weaver’s final touch.

Unique Handwoven

This handwoven rug reminds me of the 1970’s when I worked at Nantucket Looms. They carry on the tradition of making unique one of a kind treasures to this day!
