WALKING DOWN THE AISLE? DO IT ON AN ANTIQUE RUNNER!


When that groom and groom, or bride and bride, or even (gasp!) that bride and groom walk down the aisle in New York State from July 24 on, make their event even more memorable  by covering the aisle with an antique hooked rug or rag carpet runner. It will be something the couple can use in their home after the ceremony to cherish as a reminder of their long-anticipated day.

I recommend using a runner from the 19th or early 20th century instead of a plain old white rug. Make your choice from our broad inventory of loom-woven rag carpet in plaids, or with vertical stripes, or with all- over striations;  traditional hooked rugs in runner lengths with either geometric, floral or pictorial designs, or braided or crocheted runners. 

Choose something that will delight the happy couple, and will also intrigue the wedding guests. We've assembled a great collection; the runners vary in color, in width from about 1 ½’ wide up to 4' wide, and vary in length from 8' up to some rag carpet rolls that run 45' long; later on, those can be cut into shorter strips and sewn together to make a room size carpet.

The real beauty of antique and vintage rag carpet and hooked rugs just can't be replicated because of the color variegation and materials in the originals that over time produce wonderful visual effects, giving them an incomparable liveliness and depth.
