Black and white rugs are fun to make. I stash black and white fabric separately, until I have a full bin. Then I sort it into six or eight different shades, depending on the amount of black in the fabric. Black and white rugs are striking. They are not always the easiest rugs to live with: they won’t hide much dirt, and they will command attention. However, if that’s what you want to do, there’s nothing better!
And here are some black and white rugs that have found their home with a collector:
Any of these can be used as starting points for a rug made to your specifications. However, because the rugs are made from recycled tshirts (among other fabrics)*, they can never be exactly duplicated.
The complete collection of rugs available for purchase is shown on the Rugs from Rags page, and hand made rag rugs that have found their permanent home can be seen on the Rugs in Private Collections page.
*Fewer recycled tshirts are used in the black and white rugs because tshirts come in bright solid colors, rather than the plaids, stripes and prints that make for a good black and white rug.
