From our Heritage Collection

A 1920s vintage Swedish floor runner. The trasmatta rug features a geometric pattern in pink, purple, light blue, red, and burgundy tones. It is a rare long length.

A combination of durability and simple elegance, these vintage rag rugs were made by Scandinavian farmers. During the winters, farmers filled their hours and supplemented their incomes by weaving these vibrantly colored rugs on home looms. On account of the size of a home loom, the rugs breadth approximately two feet, however the lengths vary from four feet up to the rare seventeen feet. The addition of a Scandinavian Rag Rug to a room provides warmth of spirit and a natural, down-to-earth splendor.
