Modern Swedish Rugs

These rugs are available in a palette of fresh stripes, a typical Gustavian pale blue and a soft grey. The modern rugs are a continuation of the tradition of rug weaving in Scandinavia. Although using modern dyes a number of the patterns are based on century’s old design tradition. The rugs are tightly woven and with the exception of the brightly striped rug, are reversible.
