Where I live if you don’t see water you are looking at trees: big trees! Evergreens are the dominant tree and vary from needled, i.e. Douglas fir, cedar, hemlock to broad leaf, i.e. madrona , laurel. Deciduous species also abound including alder, maple and an occasional oak. In short we have a lot of trees and they served not only as the inspiration for this rug but for the palette I used in decorating my own home. On the whole we see green but up close we see different patterns and textures due to the variation in foliage type and tree bark. That is also evident in this rug. At a distance the green is evident but as we move closer the twill weave and variations in the weft materials show through. The line in the swatch shows the diagonal of the twill. A bold weft mutes the weave pattern. The warp is double cotton for strength and the weft is a combination of upholstery fabric and wool yarn with less dense picks of wool in this rug than some of my other weavings.
