Discovered at BDNY – Flying Shuttle Mills with 40 Rug Patterns from 1768-1920’s

SHARE

Flying Shuttle Mills weren’t showing rugs at BDNY (they were showing amazing textiles) but I was excited to find them.  Down in York, Pa, they own 52 looms capable of weaving ingrained patterns some dating to the 18th century.  They have been commissioned to weave carpets for many Presidents’ houses starting with GW’s Mount Vernon.  We will be writing more about them in the magazine, RUG NEWS andDesign.
