Collection

These natural materials are used extensively in my rug weaving. I will explain the different characteristics and qualities of the materials I use.

Wool

A fantastic natural material with many fine properties, wool is durable and naturally stain resistant with its natural oils, wool blends are healthy mixed with other materials such as hemp, bamboo and flax.

Bamboo

A great material with many good qualities, bamboo fibre is very strong with similar characteristics and colours to silk.

Hemp             

Is a very strong and durable fibre, known to mankind as an old established plant. The beauty of hemp is its capacity to grow rapidly and its many uses, I love hemp, foremost for its sustainable qualities.

Flax

Is a strong fibre with a beautiful glossy surface, flax beautifully blends with wool, flax is a relatively expensive material.

Cotton      

Used primarily in various warps in my weaving and I use only organic cotton. Lightweight cotton rugs in plain weave are always beautiful and useful in a classic stripe for example.
