Vintage Swedish Rug BB4784

Vintage Swedish Rug Description:

A Scandinavian mid century antique rug from Sweden with a polychrome allover trellis pattern, with lozenges inspired by traditional folk motifs within a beige rope design border.

Although the majority of people associate carpets with certain shagginess, vintage area rugs constitute a substantial part of the profound weaving heritage. Flat, vintage scandinavian rugs have widely contributed to the development of rug-making techniques as they represent one of the basic forms of woven textiles. They are made without a pile and build upon the intertwining warp and weft. The simplicity and lightness of flatweaves mustn’t be taken for a sign of inferiority. On the contrary, the slightly simplified making techniques allow weavers to create ingenious pieces, often with an ethnic vibe, distinguished by appealing designs and incredible durability.
