Tabby Rugs

All these rugs were woven using a method I call Tapestry Woven rugs.

The Loom is threaded at 3EPI meaning three warp ends to an inch.

The design is hand manipulated to give the desired effect.

Here is a rug that looks like the others but in fact has been made using the 4 end shaft switching levers.

Therefore the reverse side is the opposite colour.
