The Floor Blanket from Paraguay
These layering rugs, or floor blankets, come from leftover scraps gathered from the floors of apparel manufacturers in Paraguay. Sorted by color and bound into bales, the preserved pieces of remnant fabric are carried to the countryside where they are cut by hand into ribboned strands, and readied for their second life. The work of the loom is rough-hewn and repetitive, made beautiful by the considerate hand and careful eye of the artisan. Simple, steady movements of an old process combined with unassuming scraps of fabric create the warmth of character, gentle drape, and wide versatility of our layering rugs and floor blankets. Due to the authenticity of the raw materials and the individuality of the hand-loomed process, each rug varies in pattern, color tones, texture and design, making each one truly unique with unrepeatable character.
Use and Care: These rugs have traveled a long way to get here. To remove wrinkles and creases that may be present from their journey, give them a gentle cold wash with hardly any soap. Lay them flat or hang them to reshape as they dry.
