Description

Hemp vintage rugs are weighty, robust, strong, and bold; and blend well with natural settings such as wood, stone or tile floors; and they present fine contrasts for displaying brighter or more complex textiles. Design styles range from plain and unembellished fields, through simple warp-striped weaves, some with sparsely decorated asymmetrical designs, through a myriad of symmetrical weft band and floating motif combinations, to complex geometrical patterns. Many are highly embellished with ancient bold motifs rendered in dyed hemp, goat hair, wool and/or synthetic yarns. These combinations are creatively matched in texture and color, and deeply satisfy our aesthetic senses. Thin strips of colorful market cloth were also repurposed into hemp textiles following the “waste not, want not” ethics of subsistence farmers. Locally sourced pigments were used to dye hemp yarn, and the goat hair and wool are often naturally colored, but the brightly colored wool yarns used in motifs were generally synthetically dyed. Hemp rugs offer tactile pleasures best enjoyed by sitting, lying down, stroking or walking on them with bare feet. A great advantage of our rugs is their excellent condition. Pre-loved, but not worn out, they should serve for many more decades. These are all special weavings, unique and unforgettable.
