Description

This is a lovely green, light green and beige rug little rug. It is 32.5 inches by 21 inches. It weighs 3 pounds. 

It is a very old method particularly popular during the depression called Amish Knot, or Toothbrush Rug. It is neither crocheted or braided, but rather is constructed by knotting fabric into the previous rows. The tool is actually made from the handle of a toothbrush.  Since it is individually knotted, each knot can be pulled tight so the rug retains it's thickness and stiffness years after it is made.  There are no strings to break like a braided rug.  It will not unravel like a crocheted rug can.  They will last for years after repeated washing.

To clean, simply put  it in the washing machine.  If it is extra dirty, add some type of oxi cleaner.  Then put it into the dryer until it is damp, and lay flat to air dry.  

I call them a generational rug because your grandchildren will still be using the rugs.  Totally recycled.  Totally made with love.
