Storm Pattern with Raised Outline Navajo Rug, by Marie Sheppard
Storm Pattern of Raised Outline Weaving Technique, Navajo Rug
Marie Sheppard weaves a variety of rug styles, but is best known for her raised outline rugs in dazzling designs. She uses a combination of undyed, natural wool in creams and subtle grays and will often re-dye commercially dyed spun wool to colors of her choosing, or hand dye wool with her wide array of hand crafted vegetal pigments. This rug is luxuriously soft and would drape nicely on seating or a bed.
