As fiber artists we created Sacramento Mountain Weavers in 2002 after acquiring two looms from a cousin in Illinois. We then relocated to our home-based studio in Euless, Tx.
Our passion for textiles quickly led us in many directions, including designing fabric we execute on our loom. Every day is a new experience and a new result in our studio.
We draw from a variety of sources, many of which are recycled materials. Every rug is unique to each other. Each are one-of-a-kind, which makes them interesting and exciting when it is time for the rugs to come off of the loom.
Each rug is crafted with as many as ten hours of labor. The process is the same for every rug, yet the results are as numerous as there are snow flakes.
The colors, textures, and shades of colors are what binds us to our craft. As with all artist's, we endow a small part of ourselves in every piece that we craft, while paying attention to detail and style.
We hope you enjoy the fruits of our journey!
A Little Information About Our Rugs
Currently on our loom we are weaving some very colorful rugs using Pendleton wool selvages. Being a New Mexico native (Kelly), our work tends to have a more Southwestern flavor and influence.
Our handwovens are perfect for your Southwest home or business, giving a flare to and enhancing your Rocky Mountain living and Southwest lifestyle.
We love to blend different materials at times like leathers and denim(recycled from blue jeans). These combinations often yield unexpected surprises. Our handcrafted rugs are one-of-a-kind because of the materials we use. We often cannot duplicate our work which makes each rug even more of a unique item.
When you purchase our handwoven rugs you are helping to keep an ancient craft alive. Since we devote so much time to achieving the perfect blend of these cloths and fibers, our rugs are very distinctive.
Much interest has been generated in our craft by our attendance at numerous juried art shows, and our reputation has rapidly spread through word of mouth. We currently have two exclusive stores which carry our rugs, and now through our website we hope to be able to share our work with even more people who appreciate unique, one-of-a-kind handmade items.
