Vintage Rag Rug BB6163
Vintage Rag Rug Description:
This circa-1940 vintage rag vintage rug features an all-over design of densely spaced horizontal multicolored stripes that blend together for a beige 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 yellow, mauve and green. Rag rugs are folk craft antique oriental 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 runner carpets. Rag rugs for sale 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 rugs for sale are keenly sought after.
