    Our 12/6 cotton rug warp is the highest quality warp to be found for rag rugs, due to its long fiber content and tight double twist. When woven under tight tension and with a hard beat, your rug will not buckle or ripple, but always lie flat and firm on the floor. Our stripe design is colorful and fun, or choose a solid color if you prefer, and let us know. So much opportunity for design, and making good use of cast-off clothing and other textile goods. No need to worry about the math, simply choose one of our colorways, or invent your own.

    How to invent your own colorway:

    Email your color choices to orders@vavstuga.com when you place your order.
