> Welsh area rugs are more of a tapestry than rug. These rugs are still made in a few mills in Wales using traditional weaving skills on Dobcross looms.
Interesting looking machine the Dobcross Loom is. At the turn of the century these looms would have filled many warehouses , weaving the latest fabrics and garments.
Welsh rugs, blankets and tapestries are woven so that the two sides are opposite colour of each other.
I found many websites that sell Welsh tapestries today. These rugs do make a great statement and will get noticed no matter where you put them in your home.
I love seeing unique rugs from around the world. That is one of the best parts of my job.
Thanks for reading, RugloverMary.
