It can be attributed to its expert hand-making of the finest wool in accordance with traditional weaving techniques. If properly maintained, the antique rug will serve its owners for generations. Energetic yet balanced, pronounced yet universal – this Scandinavian flat-weave is full of paradoxes with together contribute to its magnificent shape and irresistible appeal. If given a chance, the vintage rug will bring in the charm and never-passing elegance of Scandinavian craft.
