Vintage Rag Rug BB6165

Price: $4,000

This circa-1940 vintage rag runner carpet features an all-over design of densely spaced horizontal multicolored stripes that blend together for a brown background, against which two vertical stripes running the length of the runner-style vintage carpet stand out. The vertical stripes themselves are uniquely composed of multiple bands of bright yellow, orange and green. Rag rugs are folk craft vintage area rugs made from old clothing torn into strips. They can be created by braiding or weaving the strips to form oval, circular or rectangular shapes. The strips may also be tied in knots in 20th century rugs. Rag rugs were originally created out of necessity, with limited supplies and only the simplest tools used to braid and crochet useful floor coverings from scraps of discarded fabric. Because of their authenticity and beauty, vintage American rag antique oriental rugs are keenly sought after.
