By the end of the 19th century, rag rugs had become widespread and were no longer found only in sophisticated homes. It was probably around this time that people also started weaving rag rugs in Denmark.
At Georg Jensen Damask, we still see rag rugs as a fantastic product that reflects our unwavering focus on ensuring sustainable textile production. We endeavour to minimise waste, and our rag rug is woven from leftover fabric from the production of e.g. tea towels, sheets and kimonos, which are torn up and woven together.
“I am delighted that we are able to recycle leftover fabric and turn it into a product that everyone loves. It is important for us to upcycle,” says Christian Borch, Head of Product Creation at Georg Jensen Damask.
Despite its long history, the rag rug is a very contemporary product that fits beautifully into the home or the holiday cottage, adding a light and cosy feel to any room.
