Product Focus: Quilt Rug

2/13/2020

Our Quilt Rugs take direct inspiration from the patchwork quilt making process. Blocks of braided wool lines are ordered but not exacting as we try to evoke the looser style of scrap quilts which allow irregular shapes to make up the whole. During their conception, we looked at everything from Alabama's Gee's Bend to the work of Oregon artist Shiela Laufer

The historic braid technique that we use to fabricate our rugs was made popular by the women of colonial America as it could be executed by hand without a loom using any available textile scraps.

Today, we fabricate our new wool designs through a partnership with a family-owned mill in New England well known for perfecting this traditional craft.

We offer our Quilt Rug in four standard sizes: large, small, runner and mat as well as custom sizes to suit individual spaces.

Our standard yarn is 100% undyed Canadian wool. Wool is one of the most resilient, stain and even flame resistant natural fibers. The braided fabrication makes these rugs durable enough for a high wear commercial space, but soft enough for a child's playroom.

For those of you with wool sensitivities, we have blended yarn options as well as Sunbrella yarn which can be used both indoors and outdoors. 

You can find our rugs through our Bainbridge Island studio, in New York at Colony or in Los Angeles at Lawson-Fenning. If you plan on attending New York design week, you can find us in the WantedDesign section of the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, May 17 - 20.
