MY HANDWOVEN RUGS and the Story of the Red "L"
I make my handwoven rugs on vintage 2-harness Union floor looms. My rugs are woven in new cotton or wool fabrics using cotton-poly colorfast frayless warp. I can also make room-sizedrugs (up to 16 feet wide and as long as you need!) on my Leclerc Kebec II broadloom.

MY RUGS and THE RED "L" Everything I weave has the red "L." When I started It's a Linda Handwovens in 1983, I wanted to be able to guarantee my craftsmanship. This led to a dilemma: how to sign each one of my handmade rugs? And so the red "L" was born. The red "L" is woven into the corner of every rug I have ever made; it is my artist signature, and your guarantee. Linda rugs are ALWAYS guaranteed to wash and wear beautifully. And so I say... If it doesn't have a red "L," it's just something to walk on.
The Red "L" - our signature and your guarantee!
