The white, lonesome walls at the shop are awash with color. Tireless stripey shirt uniform wearer, fellow neighborhood shopkeeper, and friend Rory Rabut has kindly installed a group of gorgeous North American Indian and Central American woven textiles. Each piece in his collection—ten years in the making—was selected for its vibrant colors and bold graphic design. The show does include several collectible Yei rugs and fine saddle blankets, however Rory’s emphasis is on the immediate appeal of the weavings as beautiful objects, regardless of their pedigree.
Rory and his fantastic wife Ria run a vintage store called The Good Shop over on Folsom @ 22nd Street. Check them out!
