Floor cloths first appeared in the early 1800’s in Britain. They became quite popular and were both hand painted and manufactured until the introduction of linoleum later in the same century. Made of sailcloth they were durable and cost effective compared to the oriental rugs popular at the time. My floorcloths are created with heavy canvas, high quality acrylic paints and several layers of clear protectant. With your suggestions, your custom designed hand painted floorcloth will add color and whimsy to kitchens, living/garden rooms, bedrooms and play rooms. Contemporary floorcloths remain a great substitute for area rugs to protect wood or tired floors and as beautiful floor coverings for your home
