The Land of Nod


Desert Mural Rug
This cotton dhurrie is bold geometric shapes and colors note the cascade of light and shadow of sunrise and sunset over the Mojave Desert.

A wool pile rug blends a soft palette with geometric shapes.

I designed a series of playful, vibrant, winsome rugs for children’s lifestyle company The Land of Nod. Experimentation with drawing and painting simple shapes, geometric lines and color blocking were the direction and inspiration for this work.

I travelled to India with The Land of Nod to work with a cooperative of weavers to produce these rugs in all natural cotton and wool fibers. Each rug is hand woven on pit looms in weavers homes.

Read about the India trip on the Herron blog. 

Studio Herron’s relationship with weavers in rural Panipat is one of ethical and responsible labor practices and methodologies.

I love rug weaving because a rug is like a giant canvas to me. My work has always been influenced by what is around me, whether it is an urban landscape or the architecture found in nature.
