Bold and geometric, this reversible table runner will liven up any tabletop. This colorway is perfect for fall, featuring rust, gold, navy, and orange. One of a kind.
These table runners are woven as if walking a path. After setting up the loom, I make decisions in the moment while weaving—left here, then right, straight, diagonal. This creates a cloth with no repeat, as the constantly changing path winds over the piece. For me, weaving is a physical record of time and place, so each table runner is embedded with unique markers that can’t be replicated.

Julia Lines has been a weaver for 15 years and has worked extensively with textiles in the fashion, craft, and fine art worlds. Machine in Hand merges her experiences in these worlds through her own small scale one of a kind handwoven production using American yarns. Weaving is a physical collaboration between the weaver and the loom: they both need each other to create cloth. Machine in Hand’s textiles are woven to represent the actual time taken to weave cloth; highlighting labor and showing the difference between weaver-made and industrial powerloom cloth. This act of production hopes to keep buyers curious about who makes our clothes, who farms our fiber, and how interconnected these systems are.
