Common Threads rug by Jan Kath

Drawing inspiration from 18th and 19th century darning samplers, the Jan Kath company has designed a new line of rugs, transforming delicate patterns and techniques rooted in the past into large-scale modern masterpieces.

Common Threads collection at Christiane Millinger Handmade Rugs

The inspirational samplers, housed in the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, along with examples of the mending of curtains, tablecloths, and other domestic garments by young German, English, Belgian, and Swedish women, demonstrate deft craftmanship and charming whimsy in what originated as utilitarian repair techniques.

The resulting line of rugs stays true to the colorful patterns and motifs, translating them thoughtfully into intriguing pieces for the modern home.
