> The Dahlov Ipcar Collection

We mourn the passing of a great artist and a good friend, Dahlov Ipcar
(November 12, 1917 – February 10, 2017).

Classic Rug Collection is proud of our association with Maine artist, author, and illustrator Dahlov Ipcar. In a career spanning more than 60 years, Mrs. Ipcar wrote and illustrated more than 30 children’s and young adult books, starting with The Little Fisherman (by Margaret Wise Brown) in 1945 and including The Cat at Night, One Horse Farm, Hardscrabble Harvest, The Calico Jungle and My Wonderful Christmas Tree.

Barbara Barran worked with Mrs. Ipcar to translate her images to a new medium: hand-sewn chain stitch. Made of wool thread on natural canvas, the pillows in the collection are completely made by hand in Kashmir.

 Many of the artist’s books are available for purchase at www.IslandportPress.com.

All designs are the copyright of Dahlov Ipcar.

Please note: We have a limited quantity of items, and they will not be duplicated.


These Dahlov Ipcar pillows have been hand-crafted of wool thread on cotton. The cover should be drycleaned. Do not wash. Filled with 100% poly made in the USA.
