Handmade fabric/rug of wool and linen from Skåne in southern Sweden. They are woven in a variety of techniques and were used as a wall hangings and bench lengths. Most were woven during the years 1750-1850, and also in the early 1900s. Röllakan (or even flatweave) is a weaving technique which is a simpler variant of tapestry fabric. A similar technique is Kelim, common in the Arabic tradition. This fabric is probably made in the early 1900s and the yarn might be dyed plant but I´m not sure as the colours are not as strong as in the other older one that I have posted. I think it is very beautiful, which crafts! This rug/hanging is 2,42 meters long.
