Vintage Colours Rag Rug


A truly unusual combination of cloths came together unexpectedly well. I have been weaving rugs for 50 years or so, and am often surprized. I started off with this turquoise string warp trying to repeat past successes.  But of course, this never works. As Joni Mitchell says, did they say “paint another Starry Night, Van Gogh” , or words to that effect. So, from all my collections of cloth cut into strips, somehow this rug came together.  80% cotton, 15% rayon, 5% raw silk. Definitely One of a Kind.  Nice and long, 23×95 inches, 59×163 cm. Machine washable in cool water, gentle cycle. Line dry or on a rack.
