A very special antique Swedish rug, most likely from the late 1800s or early 1900s. It is a joyful blend of decorative weaving methods using warm pinks and Swedish blues. It is a perfect piece to use as a highly textured contrast to very modern, clean interiors. This rug would also look right at home in a cottage, coastal or eclectic decor. Best of all, the colors are still clear yet the signs of wear only enhance this piece. Woven in Sweden on a wooden loom. A true piece of history.
This is a one-of-a-kind rug, designed by a highly 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.
