The Dreamcatcher Collection is inspired by classic Navajo rug-weaving traditions. We worked with our expert weavers over a four-year period to reproduce the exact feel, texture, weave and look of timeless Navajo handwoven rugs. All of our beautiful rugs are woven by finely trained weavers using New Zealand wool and colorfast, Swiss chrome dyes. Rugs are woven in traditional designs based on examples of Ganado, Teec Nos Pos, Two Grey Hills, Crystal, Chief Blankets, etc.
The Pendleton® Reserve Collection
The Pendleton® Reserve Collection is drawn from Pendleton and other historic blanket designs. For the first time, these striking designs are being transformed into vibrant and lush pile carpets. Southwest Looms is the exclusive licensee for Pendleton rugs. These remarkable rugs are hand-knotted with approximately 80 knots to the square inch. We use high quality New Zealand wool and colorfast, Swiss chrome dyes to produce a rug that will provide beauty and durability for your lifetime. The wool is handspun, yielding varying diameters, so that when dyed, a delightful variegated color is achieved, giving the completed rug a richness and subtle blend of colors.
The Pendleton® Classic Collection
The Pendleton® Classic Collection is also drawn from Pendleton trade blanket designs, but these rugs are constructed in the hand-tufted method, instead of hand-knotted like Pendleton Reserve. We use the same high quality New Zealand wool and Swiss chrome dyes. The wool is inserted into a cotton backing using a handheld yarn gun. Once the wool is in place, it is latexed and secured with a heavy, durable backing. Last, we shear the pile of our rich and colorful rugs low, to improve the clarity of their amazing designs.
Art & Crafts Collection
Over the course of many years Southwest Looms has worked meticulously to produce, what many consider, to be the best Arts & Crafts rug designs. We have experimented with one hundred designs and are always making new prototypes.
These vivid, flat-weave, all-wool rugs are anchored, as always, with a nod to the past and a gaze on the future. Incorporating the rich blues of water and sky, these traditional patterns are fresh, clean, and in keeping with the current aesthetic of minimalist mountain living. Seven designs stocked in multiple sizes from 4x6 to 9x12. Mood Indigo, anyone?
Santa Fe Collection
Lodge with a modern twist! The Santa Fe Collection is luxury under your feet. Offered in contemporary palettes and designs, this collection is constructed using a 100 knot Tibetan weave and high quality New Zealand wool.
Beautiful flat-weave rugs suggestive of rugged landscapes and rustic homeplaces, made with natural undyed wool.
