In the 18th and early 19th century when rugs and carpets were scarce in rural New England, painted floors and painted canvas floorcloths were used to add beauty, convenience and protection to a floor.

With longer lasting materials, today's floorcloths are even more durable. Floorcloths are made of heavy canvas which is painted and/or stenciled.  Multiple layers of varnish seal and preserve the paint to make them easy to care for and practically stain and waterproof.

A practical solution in frequent spill areas. A welcome alternative for those with dust alergies.

Custom floorcloths can be designed to complement your decor.
