Common Loom produces one-of-a-kind rag rugs for sale and custom rag rugs on commission from fragments of worn, surplus, and discarded fabric. Through teaching and learning, and collaborations and partnerships, Common Loom also explores the social dimensions of rag rug weaving. I gave this project the name Common Loom to highlight the power of rag rugs to bring threads, fabric, and people together, to create possibilities and to interact in unexpected, inspiring ways.
