The Mission’s eye-catching design destinations

After discovering felted lamb’s wool rugs, a handmade nomadic tradition that predates weaving, Melina and Dodd Raissnia established a workshop to give the lost craft a stylish reboot. Their dense, tactile rugs, dyed in warm earth tones, resemble large modernist paintings. Remnants get a second life in the form of choobs, felt poufs named after the Farsi word for “log.” The shop owners plan to follow up their recent Heath collaboration with a series featuring local designer Alison Damonte and architecture-design firm Marmol Radziner. 2235 Mission St.,
