A rare and historic Swedish rug is proudly in our collection. The woven pattern is of the trends of this time period. Classic Scandinavian blues and pinks in darks and lights are beautiful. This rug shows a well used patina and is perfect in any interior design from traditional to country to modern and of course eclectic. Its narrow width is also typical for this time period. Put it in a hallway, in the kitchen in front of cabinetry or behind a sofa as some examples. It's wonderful.

This is a one-of-a-kind rug, designed by a skilled Swedish weaver on a wooden loom in the weaver's own home. The pattern is symmetrical yet with subtle and random differing characteristics which adds to a wholly original and casual design. Swedish rugs are known for their sophisticated color palettes featuring unexpected combinations of color and pattern.
The craft of weaving rugs has been an important cultural craft in Sweden for centuries. This rug is woven in the Tuscaft method. Swedish weavers are highly skilled and this tightly woven rug will last for many years to come and only gets better with age. This rug is reversible! It is also washable in cold water and lay flat to dry.
