Rya rugs are named for a Southwest town in Sweden and date as far back as the 16th century. Similar to other local traditional artisan rugs, Rya rugs were originally intended as bedding to provide warmth through long, cold winter months. Traditionally made in solid, monochromatic colors, more modern variations have bright and diverse color palettes and abstract patterning.
