Beautiful Collection of Norwegian Rugs and Carpets
Norwegian Rugs and Carpets – Norwegian rugs share Eastern influences dating back to the 15th century when Oriental carpets reached the Baltic. Rya rugs, the common design of Norwegian rugs, are similar to the Bessarabian kelim that resulted from flat tapestry carpets brought back from the Goths and Vikings who traded throughout Russia and in Istanbul. The designs are typically semi-geometrical, floral or plain and are often ornamented with multiple parallel borders. Norwegian rugs have religious motifs and depict the influence of prevailing European styles.
