Community Rug Weave

  • Fiber College of Maine 216 West Main Street Searsport, Maine USA (map)


Potholder Rugs are very large-scale potholders like you might have made as a child. They are amazingly insulating, comfortable to walk on and sit on, and are 100% recycled and chemical free. They can be made from any sort of stretchy discarded clothing. Loops are carefully cut strips that are woven on simple frame looms creating the finished floor carpet, dog bed, chair pad, or sleeping mat. The process is ancient and simple -- the finished product is clean, fresh, and useful.
