​​​​​​​​What are my styles of rugs?
1.   Rag Rug
           I usually weave a four harness (Twill) construction.  Rag Rugs are also woven in a two harness Tabby (or plain) weave.  I prefer the sturdiness of the Twill technique.  Fabric normally used in my Rag Rugs are denims and corduroys ripped into strips and then sewn together to form the "weft".  Rag Rugs are functional, durable and machine washable.

2.  ​​​​​​​​ Shag Rug​
           This style of rug is woven with the same construction as my Rag Rug.  But the materials used are shaggy selvages from textile factory scraps. These selvages are a byproduct in the weaving process of fabric yardage on industrial looms.  These rugs have a wonderful thick texture.  They are also machine washable.

3.  ​​​​​​ Ripsmatta (REP Weave) Rug
           This is a rug in which there is a pattern.  It is also called a "warp-faced" rug because the warp dominates.  In a Twill Rag Rug the warp and weft play equal parts in how the rug looks.  In a Ripsmatta Rug, pattern is created by alternating contrasting colors of warp.  The stronger the contrast, the stronger the pattern.  The complexity of the pattern is determined by the number of harnesses used.  Two harnesses creates a very simple pattern.  Because I have a rug loom with eight harnesses, I can create a more complicated pattern.  These rugs are very attractive and are more contemporary in style than the Rag Rug.  I use fabric strips of cotton or wool for weft and poly-cotton and orlon acrylique for warp.

4.  ​​​ Wool on Wool
            This style of rug is constructed like a Rag Rug and uses a four harness Twill pattern.  However, the materials I use in this style create an area rug that is very thick and rich.  I use fabric strips of beautiful wool for the weft and wool yarn with accent colors in orlon acrylique and polycotton for the warp.

5.  ​​ Placemats
           Placemats are woven in a Tabby Weave, using denim strips or new cotton blend selvages for weft.  They are very durable and are machine washable.

6.  ​​​​​​​​ Saddle Blankets
           I weave saddle blankets for avilaproshop.com .  These blankets are 100% wool.  They are thick, weigh 9# and are virtually indestructible.
