Romantic cottage charm.
*Round rag rug, scatter rug, mat, bathmat, more.
*Pretty blue and beige shades.
*Hand crocheted from *clean*, used recycled fabric and bed linens made from cotton and cotton blend fabrics.
*Versatile, and one that will lend itself well to many settings and décor. Colors: (shown here in natural and incandescent lighting, and may vary from monitor to monitor – please refer to color descriptions):
-The main portion of the rug is stitched with 100% cotton material that was originally a pretty romantic chintz fabric with bouquets of roses and other flowers on the blue background. I would describe the blue ground as medium blue with a bit of brown / grey / gray for an old-fashioned, (in a good way), that gives it it’s very charming Cottage / historical look. The fabric print stitched up with splashes of light pink, red, and all shades in between with occasional splashes of gold and green on the blue background. If you still need help with a better description of the blue background shade, please contact me and I’ll be glad to help.
-Accent bands of soft tan with touches of soft rose and light brown.
*Would look great in the following settings:
Would be especially nice in cottages or homes with romantic cottage chic décor.
Country homes and décor.
Bedrooms, guestrooms, baths and select living spaces.
Victorian/historic and country living and/or utility spaces.
Cabins or country lake cottages. Country or summer kitchens/pantries.
Nurseries, children's and/or baby's rooms or play areas.
Transitional living or utility spaces.
Seaside or beach side homes, cottages, condos, resorts and/or ocean themed settings / spaces.
Select contemporary spaces.
*Round in shape, about 35.
*Reversible - can be used face up on either side. (See photos - last shows top view of front and reverse side.)
*Lay on wood, tile, or vinyl floors, tile, or very low pile carpeting. Depending on your floor, you may want to use a thin rubber non-skid pad underneath.
Condition - newly made with freshly laundered recycled material. Some natural fraying, characteristic of rag rugs, but sturdy, clean, no stains, odors, etc.
Care instructions - hand wash or machine gentle, machine spin, re-shape, and lay flat in ventilated area to dry. For best results, and to keep this rug as eco-friendly as possible, do NOT machine dry! Keep out of direct sunlight or in open outdoor spaces where it can mildew.
A NOTE ABOUT MY RUGS:
***Why are my rugs more expensive than in other shops?
Well ahead of taking the first stitch, I search for good, quality used fabric. A lot of thought goes into the design, and the goal is for the right “look”, in color, balance, and adaptability for a wide variety of spaces.
Also, my rugs are "finer" meaning I use narrower fabric strips and a smaller crochet hook. It takes longer to achieve the final product, but the result is a more refined, less bulky, and less rustic look. If you’re looking for a very thick, rustic rug, mine may not be what you’re looking for.
Also, my rugs are apt to be more suitable for use as door mats for a couple of reasons. First, thinner rugs are more apt to provide the needed clearance with doors than thicker rag rugs. And, because many of my rugs are made with cotton blend fabrics, it can be crocheted thinner without compromising high durability.
If you’re unsure that a particular rug will work for you, please feel free to contact me prior to purchasing, and I’ll be glad to help guide you with your personal décor situation.
