How beautiful is this rug? I have a small collection of hand-made wool rugs from the 60's, but this one is my new favorite. The colour combination is just perfect, with a lovely teal background. I have a couple of my other hand-made wool rugs on the floors, but this one will get pride of place on a wall, I think. (I also cannot afford any dog accidents on this beauty... :-o)
The rug has a label on the back with name of the rug (Yo-Yo), name of design (Isern), name of maker (Elsa Løes. I thank you, Elsa!) and it's even dated (November 1969). I believe Sellgren & Co manufactured the material for rugs to DIY, possibly also the pattern.
I found the rug at my local second-hand store yesterday. I had already bought some other items and had exactly kr 64, 50 left in cash in my wallet (a little over $10) and they accepted it! Gotta love the recycling places :-)
