Peggy Taylor creates handwoven textiles in the early manner, inspired by those of the 18th century, using wool, linen, and cotton and historic weaving drafts. She researches historic textiles and weaves on looms similar to those in use 200 years ago in this country. Her business name, Loom Hall, comes from the ancestral home of her paternal family in England, where they were weavers in the 1500's. She and her husband raise Shetland sheep on the family farm in Indiana. For the past several years, she has been honored to be selected for the Early American Life magazine's Directory of American Craftsmen.
Handwoven shawls, coverlets, scarves, table runners and blankets are the offerings from Loom Hall, woven using historic weaving patterns and colors based on natural dyes. Each woven textile is crafted with care, created by hand, and held to the standards of excellence in craftsmanship. Authentic work, done by hand, with a sense of time and place: Loom Hall textiles.
