Suddenly, rag rugs are looking very modern to me…
These hand-made pieces came to America through European immigrants, and were extremely popular in Colonial New England, as well as on the frontier. Featuring an old school approach to recycling, the rugs were made of strips of worn clothing, bedding or other random textiles.
Every area has a different name for rag rugs – in England alone they’re called stobbie, tabbie, shaggy or proggie – WOW
These color combinations make me (and Tricky) swoon!
