This rug is made from new organic fabric from SOS organics from Texas. The cotton is grown in Texas and knitted in North Carolina. Then it is shipped to me and I cut /braid and sew it into a a rug. The design is one of my own drawings, and is airbrushed on with a solar reactive dye. The sun sets the color for me. The rug is washed twice after it is all done. The color is permanent. The rug is preshrunk and ready to be loved and played on. No fragrance was used in the washing process. The dye are so safe, kids can use them! Organic certificate will accompany the rug. The back is a natural color and may have small blotches on color on back.
