What is a floorcloth?
A floorcloth is a hand-painted canvas rug that has been treated to last a long time.
The popularity of floorcloths dates back to the time when Europeans first settled in America. Floorcloths were in vogue throughout the 18th and 19th centuries but were gradually replaced by synthetic floor coverings. However, floorcloths have made a great comeback due to the increasing popularity of hardwood floors and the interest in handcrafted art for home decoration.
