About Us

Forty years ago I wove my first Rag Rug. Thirty years ago I had my first booth at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. Since that time I have recycled well over thirty ton of used cotton and wool clothing. Yarns used for the warp have always been natural fibers; wool, cotton or hemp. The tools of my trade are a pair of scissors and a 18th century counter balance loom. Energy source is from what I bring to the loom each day.

With roots planted firmly in our past, Rag Rugs continue to be a good choice for any floor, any style home. At a moment in time when we need to lessen our impact on the earth Rag Rugs will soften your step. In addition to my Rag Rugs, five years ago I introduced recycled wool sweaters in the form of hot pads or ‘Sweat’r Pads’ as I have named them. Wool is a remarkable fiber, as you know, and these hot pads not only protect your hands and surfaces from the heat they feel good as well.
