This rag rug was hand woven on an antique American floor loom by Diane McKinnon for Hovden. It was made with cleaned, recycled materials. 24*39 inches.
What happened to the busserull shirts after they were so worn that you couldn't use them anymore? They were recycled into something else. For example rag rugs. Not because they were concerned with global warming or growing landfills. But because it was a resource that could be used.
Enjoy this video about the history of rag rugs.
I have 10 rag rugs in different blue tones. They are all one of a kind. I will post them December 4/5 after Scan Fair. The sizes are 24 inches wide and between 32 and 47 inches.
