Curator's Notes
The Design:

Found in nearly all cultures with a weaving tradition, Steppe’s motif honors the fundamentals of working on a loom: straight lines and right angles.

The Material:
  • New Zealand merino is a premium wool: extra soft, very fine, with a slight sheen
  • Handspun wool weft expresses the natural irregularities and textures of the yarn
  • Cotton warp creates a sturdy, long-lasting foundation
  • The geometric pattern is woven in a subtle spectrum of cool grey to warm brown, carefully mixed for continuity. Their marled, heathered tones adapt easily to any surrounding color palette.
The Factory:

We partnered with a small, family-run weaving house known for their commitment to hand-weaving and flatweave expertise. They’re Craftmark-certified, which means they meet stringent standards for socially responsible handmade products. Many of their weavers have been with them for as long as 30 years. To visit their factory is to be steeped in its personal history, from the walls of photographs honoring their lineage, to the majestic, hundred-year-old timber looms they still use today.

Both bold and restrained, the Ledger Panel Rug is broken up with blocks of color that animate its negative space.

Curator's Notes
The Design:

Our Panel Collection is inspired by the rugs of nomadic tribes, who, limited by the size of their loom, would join long narrow panels together.

The Material:
  • We designed a premium 100% unbleached Sardinian wool blend, known for its natural sheen and long fibers, making it stronger and less likely to shed. We searched for a shade which was both naturally beautiful, as seen in the warm, off-white ground, and would also dye truest to color, shown in the gentle blue accents.
  • It was important to us not to bleach the wool, because in so doing you sacrifice many of its natural benefits. These include a hydrophobic layer which repels dust and dirt, as well as oils and lanolin which give it a trademark luster, and protect the fiber from breaking and shedding.
  • To create the dappled highs and lows of Revival’s own Fog Blue, we space-dyed wool in small batches. This process achieves a watercolor effect, adding depth of color. The dye we use is low-impact, which means no heavy metals and less greywater.
The Factory:

For our Panel Collection, we partnered with a generations-old weaving house in Northern Indiaーthe same factory that produces some of the highest-end rugs on the American market. They helped us obsess over every detail, making endless samples and experimenting with new and forgotten techniques. They are also committed to low-impact production techniques: using local grain byproduct to power the factory, as well as testing and treating their water so it can be reused by local farmers.
