"This runner is a tribute to my uncle," says Angela Adams, "who shared my love of color and cats." In creating her Jimi Runner (2008), Adams plays with familiar, organic shapes, textures and her unerring sense of color in this unique Runner. Jimi's slender scale suits even small spaces, while its varied pile height creates a compelling texture to complement the neutral coloring. The Jimi Runner is hand-tufted New Zealand wool with a cotton backing that won't scratch floors. All Angela Adams rugs are responsibly handmade by skilled artisans. A portion of the proceeds from every rug sale is donated to the country where it was manufactured. Made in India.

Great design often comes from a sense of place, and this is no exception for the work of Angela Adams, who weaves the rugged beauty and inimitable style of her native Maine into her work.
Born and raised on a small island off the coast of Maine, Adams was educated in interior design at the Philadelphia Art Institute. Rediscovering Maine's rug-making traditions when she moved back to the area after school, Adams began experimenting with rug-making by combining age-old techniques with modernist designs. The results are fresh, edgy rugs in dynamic patterns that are made from the finest New Zealand wool in traditional hand tufted construction and would look at home in the hippest Soho lofts.
