Greek Flokati Rugs

Just like Persian and many other rugs, Flokati area rugs also have a story to tell. According to history, they were first used as clothing to protect the outdoor people of ancient Greece namely, warriors, shepherds and travelers from the harsh winter weather. They were later on developed as a home decoration, the perfect floor covering to warm homes during the winter months and to cool in the summer season. These rugs were also used as gifts of women for their prospective husbands. Up to this day, the Flokati has retained it’s impeccable reputation and quality as first-class.

Traditional Greek Flokati are rugs made from 100% wool. Many Flokati rugs are still made in Greece and are made by hand by knotting wool through a stout backing material (sometimes woven wool). And if you are lucky, then you might just find yourself one that has been put through the ancient water ripening technique.
