Ledbetter, Albert–Hand Woven Rugs

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAlbert Ledbetter has taken over the hand woven rug trade since his mother, the late Louise Ledbetter, passed away in late 2018. 

Louise started making rugs when she was in sixth grade.  A woman paid her a quarter for weaving a rug and then sold it at the Curb Market for a dollar and twenty five cents.  That’s when Louise decided to go into business for herself.  

Louise passed down the business to her son Albert.  The rugs are made from discarded loops off of the toe a sock when it is made.  He dyes the loops to make custom colors.

The rugs come in various sizes including 18″ x 30″, 2′ x 3′ and 2′ x 4′.  Custom orders are available.  Albert also makes place mats in various sizes and create rugs from blue jeans.

Louise’s granddaughter, Cheyenne Ledbetter also does commissioned portrait drawings.
