Loop and Yarn

Ruth O'Reilly is the face behind Loop and Yarn. She is a designer maker from South Shields who creates vibrant rugs and wall pieces using a rug tufting gun. She is a Textiles and Surface Design Graduate from The Northern School of Art.

This collection is a range of hand tufted rugs, incorporating a mixture of loop and cut pile, as well as featuring some hand punched large scale loops to create an interesting mix of tactile textures.

These bold, graphic pieces can be used as rugs or wall pieces. They aim to create a mood lifting, eye-catching centrepiece in any modern home.
