2. Vintage Rya Rugs

Vintage Rya Rugs

Rya rugs are traditional Scandinavian wool rugs that are formed with a long pile. The word rya actually means rug in English, though the original meaning was used to describe bed covers. These warm and finely textured rugs first originated in the 15th century, where they were much coarser and used as covers by mariners. Since then, the rugs have evolved to become lighter and more colorful, resulting in a greater degree of artistic expression. [Read More: Vintage Rya Rugs]

Nazmiyal showcases an impressive collection of Swedish rya rugs, which are meant to convey tranquility and motion in their texture as much as their design. Because these rugs are notably shaggier than many others, collectors adore them for their texturing, which lends a three dimensional value to the designs presented on the surface. This combination results in a much more expressive variety of rugs. [Read More: Rya Carpet Collection]
