I first designed the Vintage Ski Jumper Hooked Rug as a special custom gift. As you know, poring over old photographs is a favorite way of brainstorming and putting my rugs together, and this rug was no exception. There were a few additional personalizations in that first rug, but the overall design stands well on its own. I love how this version of the vintage ski jumper comes together in color and mood. I can just feel the sense of being airborne when I look at this skier. It’s the perfect accent for the ski house or any house with a winter lover in it.
This rug is hooked with a combination of recycled cashmere from sweaters and recycled vintage wool, providing beautiful colors and textures. There’s a tad bit of new wool, too. I hooked it on a linen foundation.
The Vintage Ski Jumper Hooked Rug can be used as a table runner or hung on a wall. There are a couple easy ways to hand any rug on wall. If you’ve never done this before, don’t hesitate to ask me how.
Measures about 26″ x 14″.
This piece is made to order and there will be some variations from the photos. The nature of the recycled and hand-dyed materials I use means that no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. If there is something you’d like to customize about the piece, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
