Wavelets Rep-Weave Table Runner

Lucienne Coifman wowed us with her 8-shaft Wavelets Rep-Weave Table Runner that pays homage to her husband’s research in wavelet theory. Traditional rep weave as we know it has straight lines, but Lucienne, through a smart use of thin weft picks, was able to break those lines and make them wavy in her nontraditional variation. You might think you know rep-weave, and maybe you do, but this runner will give you a whole new appreciation. —Susan
