Ledbetter, Louise–Hand Woven Rugs

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALouise Ledbetter 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.  The rugs are made from discarded loops off of the toe a sock when it is made.  She dyes the loops to make custom colors.

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

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