Yesterday was an incredible day of community art making. Ramekon O’Arwisters treated us to his magical Crochet Jam at Peace Industry. The beautiful tapestry we made together belongs to the public and will be on display in our showroom. Thank you Ramekon!! For those of you who could not be there, we will definitely be doing it again.
Join us for a free crochet jam at Peace Industry led by artist/activist, Ramekon O’arwisters. Ramekon will share his technique he learned from his grandmother as a boy in North Carolina in the tradition of rag rug making. The act of group rag rug making is a healing and community building experience which results in a visual and tactile record of the shared experience that is beautiful, useful, and empowering. The group will crochet a large scale piece which will be displayed at Peace Industry. Materials are provided, although participants are encouraged to share personal pieces to strengthen and imbue the piece with deeper meaning. Get empowered. Connect with a great community. Make new friends. Crochet jam with us! Space is limited.

We are excited to exhibit this year at The International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York where we will help you See The Other Side.
Our booth design is a fantastical reimagining of an actual event that occurred during the early travels that inspired our beginning. When we stopped to rest in the small town of Ardebil while traveling throughout Iran searching for traditional felt rugs we visited the local museum. As usual, there was a room-sized carpet. We lifted up the corner of the carpet to look at the the other side and noticed an intricately patterned felt rug underneath. It was evidence of a mysterious craft that proved impossibly elusive. Visitors will be encouraged to imagine that they are in that museum pulling back the rugs, encountering their own memories of discovery and revelation.
The idea for the new collection is designed around reversibility and flexibility. A Peace Industry rug is simply a sheet of wool felt that can be used on either side. This feature is being designed into each rug so that both sides are equally as beautiful and usable. New colors like fog and charcoal are deep and rich and are perfect as solids. Embroidered stitching and tribal remnants add one-of-a-kind details that can be removed later and redone in different colors and compositions. We hope to inspire artists and crafters to create works-in-progress during the life of the rug that evolve and act as a visual record of time and a meditation on seeing the other side.
New Arrivals are here! We are proud to introduce our new charcoal and fog blends which show off the reversible feature and offer a blank canvas on the reverse side. Have your rug artfully embroidered by us or DIY. We will show you how!
