Hooked on Summer Event
FINE, HAND-HOOKED RUGS FROM RED SPRUCE
Through August 31st
We are pleased to be featuring rugs by Red Spruce, a wonderful small custom house focusing on "the good old days" of Americana. These elegant and whimsical hooked rugs reach back to an era when women pioneers in America made their own floor coverings, telling the stories of their lives. The amazing and wonderful part of these fine, hand-hooked rugs is that you can actually have them hooked in Canada by a group of skilled artisans, led by rug visionary, Michael Christie. To complement this custom line of "Studio" carpets, Red Spruce now also offers a more affordable "Cottage" line, produced by hand in India, also of fine, natural materials. Red Spruce describes these as their couture and readymade lines. Please drop by to experience the bold colors and intriguing textures of this modern interpretation of a traditional North American folk art. We will be featuring select pieces from this charming collection through the remainder of the summer.
