Flokati Rugs

November 19, 2011

Yes please!  All those windows, a giant sectional and everything white… I’m in. The only thing I’d add is a flokati.  A flokati rug is a handmade shag wool rug. Making flokatis is a long-time tradition of the Vlachs in the Pindus mountains. The natural color of a flokati rug is off-white, but they may be dyed different colors. The entire rug is wool, including the backing from which the tapered shag emerges. After the rug is woven, it is placed in the cold water of a river to fluff the shag. They continue to be handmade in the mountains of Greece and continue to be highly sought after.  Well suited for modern and mid-century interiors I like them in any cozy space and I think they mix well with other styles.
