Rag Rugs

12 Feb

My husband, Mr Moose, recently painted our floor boards white and since then we’ve dug our various rag rugs out and started to look even for more! We’ve used them because they are inexpensive and look quite funky on our white floors. And now I’ve read it now from various sources, including the Finnish style blog Sisustusblogi¬†that rag rugs are hot!

This is¬†particularly funny, because I’ve grown up surrounded by them, obviously not appreciating how cool they’d be in the future. My grand mum’s friend used to make them from old clothes and my granny even had different rugs for Summer so that we could run in and out and not to care about the rugs! Also my mum and her sisters used to spot their old clothes in the rugs and tell stories about them. And now my husband wants to cover our house in rag rugs – what you leave in the past you’ll find in the future!
