Homestead Weaving Studio 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

Our handwoven rugs are featured on the cover of the 2010 Indiana Travel Guide, along with jewelry from Amy Greely.

The studio was featured on a segment of WTIU's Weekly Special in November, 2009. It focused on environmental weaving.
If that doesn't work, here's the link.

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.

We have expanded the studio to include a "loom room." We are open 11 to 5 most days from April to December. Other times by appointment and at the mercy of the weather. Please call to confirm that we will be here before you make the trip.


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