Marj Rush Hovde – Handmade Re-enactment Textiles

I create a variety of period-appropriate textiles including quilts, “housewives,” gentlemen’s banyans with caps, knitted voyageur caps, Scott’s bonnets, Monmouth caps, and ladies’ pockets. I base all my work off historic sources.

Each piece is individually made and unique. The photos on this page show what I have created in the past.

If you are interested in buying a piece or ordering a custom piece, please contact me on the “Contact Us” page.

  2. That bottom one looks like an amazing rug! I love the center, and I love how all the pieces look random but were chosen to color coordinate! I do love the chinese look. How long did it take you? –Amesley
