IN FROM NEPAL…

My rug is finally here! Back in September, I posted a blog about the rug design competition Black Sheep Unique promoted for interior designers and architects around the Austin and San Antonio area. To recap, I won second place out of twenty-two entries. My prize was a 4′ x 6′ wool rug, woven into my design. Damien and I met shortly after to plan out the actual design and fabrication of the rug. A digital rendering of the rug was produced, sent to me for approval, then to Nepal for production. As with any custom hand-made rug, it takes months to complete, but it has finally arrived!

Here is the painting of the rug I designed using watercolors for the competition.

Here is the rendering Black Sheep Unique generated for the weavers in Nepal to reference while weaving the rug by hand.

And here is the actual rug, woven in 100% wool.

My rug was currently featured on Mayhar Design’s Glam Gift Guide For Good Girls blog written by dear friend, Melanie Ford.  She is a fabulous wedding and event stylist in Texas.  This rug will also be available to purchase through Black Sheep Unique in any size. Custom colors are also available!
