   Fine hand-woven items and quality supplies since 1968
Homestead Weaving Studio LLC produces high-quality hand-woven rugs, clothes, throws and scarves.  Chris Gustin is a fiber artist who takes recycling seriously at her studio in Brown County, Indiana.
Her unique recycled rugs turn industry excess into contemporary art for the home.

Here is a video of the Kenyan weaving project from June/July 2013

New projects: There is a rainbow of new Möbius shawls and scarves, traditional rayon chenille scarves, and other clothing, and a studio full of Shaggy Chic rugs and colorful cotton rugs made from SolMate Socks.

The studio includes a "loom room," with six looms set up for towels, rugs, and fabric. There is a display of glass pieces by B Skinner and a gallery of paintings by artist Douglas Runyan.  We are open 11 to 5 most days. Please call to confirm that we will be here before you make the trip. All times of year are by appointment and at the mercy of the weather.


Click picture for info on our unique sectional warping system that works on almost every loom without the use of a tension box.
