Olly's Round Rag Rugs
Lostine is proud to present the work of craftsman Olly Williams. These beautiful hand made rugs are made out of old suiting fabric that the Philadelphia artist collects and repurposes. Each one is slightly different and will vary in shape adding to the charm of living with a handmade piece for the home.
The round size is the most well known pattern for a rag rug. A nice addition to an entryway that will welcome you home. It will also be an immediate new spot for your favorite four legged friend.
"I remember two rugs that graced the bare floors of our simple Missouri farm house in the 1930"s. They were made by my mother who turned worn-out wool clothing into strips and crocheted them. Soon after I retired in my 70's I saw a kit for crocheting rag rugs. The wood crochet hook reminded me of the one my mother made from a hickory buggy wheel spoke. I bought the kit and now well into my nineties I have decided to make it a family tradition" ~ Olly Williams
