CLAUDIA MILLS CUSTOM rugs accommodate any width and length combination.
Style: LOG CABIN or DOUBLE BLOCK
Material: 100% COTTON or LEATHER
CLAUDIA MILLS CUSTOM rugs are woven on 5’ looms, accommodating all sizes and colors. Rugs wider than 5’ are designed and woven in sections and seamed together. Our looms are capable of weaving lengths up to 60’.
A separate warp is set up for each CLAUDIA MILLS CUSTOM rug; these can be adapted from rugs already in our retail line or designed for any specific area using colors of your choice. Weft colors include over 120 stock colors and assorted leathers.
Cotton rugs up to a certain size can be machine-washed.
All custom projects are charged a non-refundable design fee of $150, which is applied to the final cost of the rug. The fee covers the cost of a site visit, when possible, and color renderings of designs to scale with fabric and yarn samples.
Woven samples/strike-off’s are available for an additional charge. An assembly fee of $5/linear ft. is applied to pieced rugs.
On approval of the final design, a 50% deposit is required, with the balance due on delivery of the rug. The client will pay shipping and insurance costs.
Please email or call the studio to discuss your specific project.
HOW TO ORDER A CUSTOM RUG
There are two weave styles: Log Cabin and Block Weave. Log Cabin allows for subtle, impressionistic interplay between warp yarn and fabric. Double Block is a bolder style that creates more graphic, geometric designs.
Decide if you want a cotton or leather rug.
Determine the size of the rug that will best fit your space. I can also advise you on rug size based on room size.
Collecting color ideas from other parts of your space is a great way to choose colors for your rug. Paint chips from the hardware store are good, as well as snippets of fabric.
Take pictures of the space where you want the rug to go. Seeing the location for the rug will help me visualize an ideal custom design for you. If possible, I can do a house call to actually see the place.
Send all the collected items to:

ONCE I RECEIVE YOUR MATERIALS
I will create a Design on paper to scale. Rather than using paint or pencils, I use the actual fabrics and yarns that I will weave into your rug. This way you can see the true colors. You can Approve the Design, or Request Changes. Upon Approval of the Design, the Weaving is scheduled.
