The Braided Rug Book: Creating Your Own American Folk Art
Braiding rugs is a traditional craft which was designed as a way of recycling old clothes and other fabric. However, it has developed beyond the purely practical and become a decorative art form in its own right. A braided rug is made using the same technique as is used for braiding hair. The continuous braid is then sewn or laced together. This guide provides a history of rug braiding, explains the techniques and provides 20 projects.
