Classic Rug Collection is delighted to introduce the third collection of Gee’s Bend Quilt Collection Rugs, based on the quilts by the African-American quilters from Gee's Bend, Alabama. The rugs are produced under exclusive license with the individual quilters. All of the quilt designs are copyrighted by the individual Gee’s Bend quilters. Each quilter receives a royalty for every one of her rugs that is sold.
All of the rugs are hand-made in India using the colors and patterns of the quilts on which they are based.
All of the rugs are available in custom sizes; however, the prices are significantly more. Please write to us at info@ClassicRug.com or call us at 212-832-3338 for more information.
