Floorcloth :: Hand-Painted Canvas Rug

We offer a wide selection of custom-made, hand-crafted canvas floorcloths (hand-painted canvas rugs), gameboards and table accessories. This historic floor art has been revived due to the increasing prevalence of hardwood floors. We specialize in floorcloths of historic designs, traditional quilt patterns, and designs from early American wall stencils. Over the years, our floorcloths have adorned several museums and hundreds of homes and period houses.

A well-constructed and durable floorcloth will protect floors, provide a dust-free environment, and be easily maintained over years of pleasure and enjoyment. In a period or contemporary home, a custom-made floorcloth will blend all the elements in the room. Floorcloths can be used in a high-traffic area like in an entry foyer, in front of a kitchen stove or sink, in the kids' or family room, around a bed, under the dining table, living room, laundry room, library and in any other area that needs suitable floor covering. A floorcloth provides a clean environment for allergy sufferers. Lastly, floorcloths are ideal floor coverings for pet lovers, as they do not hold hair and fur.

Our design gallery offers an extensive floorcloth collection which shows creativity and craftsmanship.
