Involvement

We are cognizant of the byproducts of modern manufacturing methods and are dedicated to fostering sustainable practices. In an effort to reduce waste, we donate our scraps to local artists who repurpose the materials into new products. In addition to the artists highlighted below, all batting waste is gifted to the Minnesota Quilters, Inc. to promote the continued education and practice around this rich art form. If you are interested in getting involved please contact us at info@louisegray.com.

Andas Mer

Andas Mer translates to “breathe more” in Swedish and serves as a reminder to live a more mindful, considered life. Each rag rug is handwoven using reclaimed materials from the local cut-and-sew industry. Scandinavian tradition informs the weaving techniques employed to create these modern designs.
