Description:

Using traditional, non-computerized floor looms, I design and weave table runners and towels. My yarns are 100% cotton and 100% linen. Color is the most noticeable design element, but the texture and quality of the finished cloth are equally important.

Table runners are woven in a variety of lengths. They're hemstitched at both ends while still on the loom then, after I cut them off the loom, I hand-twist the fringe. These extra steps ensure an elegant and durable finish. Hand-washing is preferable but they can also be machine washed and dried.


My towels are meant to be used and I weave them with absorbency and durability in mind. The more they're used the better they get. I make two different sizes suitable for kitchen or bath. Each towel is hemmed by hand and can be machine washed and dried.
