My Great Aunt in 1963 with a beautiful braided rug she made with silk ribbons from funeral floral arrangements. My Mom still has rugs made of wool that her Mom braided decades ago. They look just as beautiful today over 60 years later. My Mom and sister taught me the skill so I now can keep the memories going.
My braided memory rugs today are made from clothing and materials used by you or your loved one.
Remember favorite clothing, favorite colors, textures, and timeless memories infused in the fabrics.
These handmade rugs are washable, durable and can last decades with proper love and care.
Every rug is unique, no two will come out the same, just like us! We are all one of a kind and there is value in rarity!
