|Handmade denim rag rugs by StudioAtRedTopRanch|
StudioAtRedTopRanch on Etsy
This Etsy shop offers hand-woven placements, table runners, and rugs. The rugs are my personal favorite.
Tracy is the owner/artist at StudioAtRedTopRanch. About the rugs, she writes:
"I began making handmade rag rugs as a way to use up leftover and unloved fabric. As I studied rugmaking, it became a way to learn and preserve an art developed by women who made-do by repurposing clothes and curtains because they had no other materials available..."
One of the reasons I love her rugs is because they look a little more "finished" than my crocheted rag rugs do. I guess because hers are woven they lay flatter and looked more finished than my lumpy, thick rugs.
Another reason I really like these rugs is because they are handmade - but didn't take me weeks to make! I enjoy making my own crafts but I just don't make much time for crafts and I have the attention span of a flea.
One more reason I like these handmade items is because I like to support women who have small, home businesses. Besides, when someone is making something they love, and something that is meaningful to them, the quality is so much better.
These rugs, runners, and placements are perfect gifts for people who have a country farmhouse or rustic cabin living style. Or a perfect gift for yourself - adding a touch of "home" in your favorite room. My favorite "color" (and style) is the denim rug but she offers many colors to choose from.
