Mid-Century Swedish Wool Rug in Neutral Colors by Ingegerd Silow. Woven signature to edge “IS” BB6555 4'4" × 6'6" $8,000
Ingegerd Silow was an internationally known master weaver and designer. Her involvement in the development and popularization of Swedish weaving left a tremendous impact on local craft. Silow passed away in 2005, leaving a legacy of stunning Swedish rugs, a legacy that this vintage rug is a proud part of. Handmade of highest quality materials circa 1950, this antique carpet embodies everything that is best about Swedish weaving – beauty and durability.
While the pattern might seem simple for some, a closer look at the area rug reveals how much skill its creator had. The central filed is left largely empty, save for a few lines dividing it. However, at the top and bottom edge we can see a row of beautiful figures with a bits of color in the center.
