My Rag Rugs are made of cotton and cotton-blend fabrics. I pre-shrink all materials, the rug will not shrink when it is washed. All materials are hand cut. Several of the patterns demand strips of cloth cut to specific length. I often work in designer colors on custom orders. Many sizes are available. From 2' x 5' to stair runners or room size carpets. Larger rugs are woven in panels and then stitched together. All are washable; the smaller ones in the machine, larger rugs should be washed by hand or professionally. They can also be vacuumed using a floor brush. Visit the Rug Gallery to see the standard patterns, and the custom Gallery to see larger carpets and commissions.
How to Custom Order a Rag Rug
Select one of my current designs woven in your colors and to your measurements or commission a custom design.
There are five basic pattern designs. You can choose one of these or request a custom design. Either way, I will need color guidelines. A visit to the local paint store is a good source for swatches of the colors for your rug. Other sources of color samples can be in the form of wallpaper, upholstery, tile and photographs.
I will choose fabrics and yarns to match your color selections. A design includes samples of yarns and fabrics for your approval. A rug is commissioned by returning a 50% deposit and a signed copy of the commission agreement and quoted price.
Rugs are priced from $32-42.oo a square foot. Rugs over three (3) feet in width are woven in panels and stitched together. There is a minimum size of 2 x 5 for custom orders.
After the agreement is signed a schedule for completion will be determined.
