RUGS OF SWEDENNorra Älmtavägen 239
We are just as passionate about recycling as we are about design. Vintage and antiques offers the best of both and along the way, we have fallen in love with the traditional, handmade Swedish rag rug – an ingenious art of upcycling! That love we'd like to share with the rest of the world! From the heart of Småland, a region in Sweden also known as the Furniture District, we aim to bring history into modern homes. Rags are beautiful things when they come in the shape of rugs!
We are constantly on the search for vintage rugs, selecting them with care from private homes throughout Sweden. When we are lucky to receive rugs from grandchildren and great grandchildren of the weaveress that actually crafted the rug, it feels extra special. The rag rugs are handloomed, a craft that is still performed the same way that rag rugs have been made for more than 200 years – though it's not so commonly done today. We stock rugs from the 1800's up to about 1970/1980. Most of our stock is from 1930-1960.
The rugs are examined, washed, photographed and documented before put out for sale. If you have any questions or would like us to search for specific rugs, don't hesitate to contact us!
