Abrash in a rug
Abrash in a rug is a striation created by yarns that are dyed in multiple colors which are fairly close in tone.  Abrash shows a beautiful textural effect which can stand alone without any additional pattern in the design.  The abrash technique can be done ...

Thank you for your generosity
As most of you know, there were 2 very powerful earthquakes in Nepal recently resulting in great loss of life and property for the people there.  Julie Dasher Rugs has received tremendous support from many of our clients, friends and family for our supplier...

Couldn't help but share a picture of 2 new beautiful samples created by our team in Nepal.  The green sample on the right is our English Damask pattern in all Tibetan wool.  This is a strike off for an interior designer in North Carolina. The sample was woven in 2 different colorways, with half the sample in a mix of green and cream and the other half of the sample in shades of green.  The cream-colored sample is our Quatrefoil pattern in Tibetan wool and raised Chinese silk for another interior designer who has a new showroom in Florida.  Both are hand-knotted in Nepal with 100 knots per square inch.

Here is another beautiful wool and silk rug hand-knotted by our expert craftspeople in Nepal.  This rug was produced for an interior designer in Chicago for a client's dining room.  It is our Stately Damask pattern with raised silk.

The Mystery Behind Lanolin in Wool as a Stain Blocker
You may hear from rug dealers that the lanolin in the wool in their rugs repels liquids...that it is a natural stain blocker.  Well, wool does have lanolin in its raw state.  In the case of our hand-knotted rugs which are made in Nepal, the wool is imported...

Story
Tagline
Pattern, texture and color...my passion!
Introduction
My kind of fun is creating a unique and artisan rug design for my client. Whether a rug is "art on the floor" or a textural backdrop — my passion is designing special, custom rugs that are exclusive to the project space and a reflection of the home or commercial interior. I get great joy partnering with my clients and then working directly with the talented weavers in Nepal and seeing the rug designs come to life during the weaving process. Unveiling to my clients a beautiful rug created from Tibetan wool and Chinese silk is one of life's pleasures. Located at International Market Square in Minneapolis, feel free to stop into my showroom in Suite 542. 
Bragging rights
Designed a rug for the Governor's Mansion in St. Paul, Minnesota...now a favorite landing spot for Mesabi, Governor Dayton's dog.
