Carleton Designs studio creates completely reversible area rugs with hand-dyed worsted wool on a linen warp handwoven on a Jacquard loom in an American summer-winter weave structure.

Our Shimmer design combines ikat dyeing with hand-dyed batches for unique abrash color optics on each completely different sides of the double weave rug.  Custom colors and sizes available.


The Design Process

Carleton Designs studio's exploration of color variations with the traditional flatweave structure led into ikat dyeing to expand the possibilities of random colorplay within the graphic constraints of the Jacquard loom capabilities.

Inspired by Japanese, Southeast Asian and Native American textlles, Carolyn is incorporating color ikat dyeing into the loom-controlled construction of handwoven flatweave rugs.

The result is unique color explorations within time-honored handwoven rug techniques creating unique floor art.   


Our rugs are made of 100% natural fibers of worsted wool and Belgian linen.
