Traditional Swedish Rag Rugs

Carefully selected by The Northern House our antique and vintage rugs come in a variety of the traditional designs, colours and sizes that have been woven on floor looms by women in Sweden over many generations.

The modern rugs are a continuation of the tradition of rug weaving in Scandinavia and are available in a palette of fresh stripes, a typical Gustavian pale blue and a soft grey.
