rag rugs in the shopWe have bought these terrific rugs c.1900-40 in Sweden for many years and sold them in our antiques shop. They were made of many interesting fabrics and perhaps you will see patterns that you recognize from your childhood. Rugs were made for home use and made to last. They wash very well in the washing machine on a cold knit cycle with liquid laundry detergent or better yet, Simple Green which can be bought at hardware stores. Then just lay it flat to dry, but we find they do not need to be washed often, mostly just shook out.
