The earliest Aubusson rugs can be traced to the 1580's when weavers fleeing from Flanders took refuge in Aubusson, a village that sits astride the confluence of the Creuse River and the Beauze in the Limousin region of central France. The waters of the Creuse are reputed to be excellent for dyeing wool. Aubusson rugs combine motifs from classical Roman architecture softened by floral flourishes. - Aubusson rugs are handmade in durable flat-weave textures that have a clean, almost contemporary look. - Aubusson rugs come in a variety of color palettes. - Look for Aubusson rugs that will work with both contemporary and traditional furniture because they allow you to mix different styles together and will make it easy to change the decor of the room in the future.
