Rag rugs for sale

Hey friends and folks,
This is round 2 of selling Finnish rag rugs; the last bunch went quick!  See pics below on what's up for sale this round.

Basically, my mom weaves Finnish rag rugs from clean rags and fabric scraps. Those of you who have visited our home will have noticed our house is full of them - all made by my mom.

She recently gave me a bunch that she'd be happy to have sold. The widths vary but are around 65-74cm wide and below are the descriptions. She sells them at $35/metre.

For anyone interested and for anyone who may buy one, I'm happy to give some simple care instructions. They are washable, which definitely adds to them.

Just a little note that she weaves them on a loom and the weave is quite tight. As such, they're likely to last much longer than those you get in stores. It's not unusual for a Finnish ragrug to last two or three generations.

Anyone interested can email or message me. I'll do this on a first come, first pay basis.

1. Shades of Blue: 2.7 metres long ($94); made mostly from old blue jeans.
2. Pink Foxglove: 2 metres long ($70); pink with slate blue stripes.
3. Suomi Summer: 2.25 metres long ($77); dark blue, light blue, white repeating pattern.
4. Maroon Night: 1.65 metres long ($57); dark maroon with regular light and red stripe.

Look pretty cool. Our house is carpeted I'm afraid, except for the kitchen.

Hello,
I am interested in the 'shades of blue' made mostly from blue jeans. Is it still available?
