Dramatic vintage 1920's "tobacco felt" rug is 5-3/4 x 9-3/4" fringe to fringe. Copying oriental style rugs of the day, this felt is bright clear red with no fading, and has original silk fringes. The brilliant color is perfect for Christmas or Valentine settings, or a high Victorian mansion!
Tobacco felts were given away as premiums in tobacco products and thus the name. Their soft cotton texture makes them suitable as a blankets or bed covers. I have even used them as table covers. I will be posting a tutorial about these tobacco premiums soon.
