Appealing and memorable flat-woven designs of the mid-20th century. This rug is in excellent condition and good quality and professionally cleaned,

At first the Scandinavian rugs designs were woven in solid colors, featuring black, gray, white and yellow but as time passed geometric shapes and floral designs were introduced. Used by nobility as bedding and a display of social standing, Rya Swedish rugs were often displayed as tapestries and exhibited as family heirlooms. Scandinavian design rollakan rugs are distinctive folk weaving and many are flat woven kilim tapestry rugs.
