One of the joys of designing things by computer is the way that it makes subtle adjustment in colour and tone relatively easy.
For example – white is a realtively “hard” colour and can become quite glaringly WHITE in the small space of a dolls’ house room.
The carpet on the right is golden toned and relatively new looking and CLEAN.
The carpet on the left is more muted in tone and the colours are slightly softer and it looks as though it has been used.
To be able to offer this sort of choice is, for me, enormously exciting.

Although I use a computer to perfect the design of these carpets, they are printed by hand – not using transfer paper, but by a form of mono-printing using an acetate plate.
The examples here are on fine cotton, which gives a nice texture, and are backed with iron-on fabric stiffener – to prevent the edges fraying.
They have no fixed size, as they can be ajusted (within reason) to fit a room.
The ones here measure 5 inches along the short edge.
Please note – These rugs are not “Toys”: They are “Collector’s Items”
