I design rugs which are woven in Nepal. Every step in their creation is by hand. They are hand-knotted (80 knots/sq. inch) and made of hand spun, hand-dyed wool. The weavers are certified with GoodWeave, a global nonprofit organization working to end illegal child labor in the carpet industry and offer educational opportunities for children in South Asia.
The rugs are 'sculpted', hand-trimmed between every two colors/shapes. Because each is dyed and woven by hand, there are subtle differences between any two rugs of the same design. I value this aspect of the work -- the element of surprise and reminder of the labor-intensive handwork in this collaboration.

In addition to what you see in the gallery below, I also do custom work: adjusting the palette of an already existing design or creating something entirely new. I can work with you to create a rug in any design and size. If you are interested in placing an order and/or have any questions, please contact me. I look forward to talking with you.
Production time is approximately 3 months once the design is delivered to the weavers. I will stay in touch with you regarding progress and ETA. Prices are $90 - $100 per sq. ft. Depending on the extent of customization, an additional fee may apply.
