AMANA RUGS

The hand woven rugs were on almost every wooden floor in early Amana. They were woven by men first and later the women. The main patterns for these wool and cotton rugs were hit-and-miss or stripe. Sometimes a combination of both. Colors were mainly plain blues and browns with a red, green, or pink added for accent occasionally. Weaver's would wind a pattern on a narrow piece of wood and follow that design throughout the rug.
