This handwoven rug is beautiful enough to display as art, but durable and easy enough to clean so that you can feel comfortable using it as a rug; suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

Using two different color ropes this rug was intricately woven into a pattern resembling a Celtic knot, which measures 27 inches in diameter and weighs just over 9 pounds. You can expect to find the material pliable and soft to the touch, while it still holds its shape very well (not scratchy or stiff like jute rope). This particular rope rug is woven from three separate strands of, 10.5mm (7/16 inches), dynamic rock climbing rope to make the celtic like pattern stand out beautifully. The rug is not sewn or glued except to secure the ends, which are oriented so that they do not show on one side, are almost indiscernible on the other.

Once a climbing rope is no longer safe due to the number of life-saving falls taken on it, I weave it into a rope rug. It's a great way to repurpose an old friend that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

The rope used is resistant to to staining. Dirt and liquid do not easily penetrate the rope sheath, making it easy to clean.

Cleaning Instructions:
Wash in a front loading machine or by hand. I have found the best way to restore the original color is by washing in a front loading machine with Oxyclean detergent, in warm water. Rug can be air dried in a warm dry environment, otherwise use a dryer on the low heat setting.

Made in Montana.
