The Process

The materials for each rug start off as large wool sheets. Jan washes the wool, cuts it into strips, and rolls it into coils that are used to ultimately make the rugs. The strips from the coils are then used to create long, even braids, which she butts into circles. Each concentric circle is laced together to form the rug. Jan always plans her rugs in advance to ensure that the color choices are perfect. 

"Butting" each braid (shown here) enables Jan to make more complex shapes. Furthermore, if a a portion of the rug is damaged, she can undo the stitching to replace only the affected components so the rug can be salvaged.
