Finnish American Rag Rugs

Art, Tradition & Ethnic Continuity
Illustrated with more than 200 color photographs, FINNISH AMERICAN RAG RUGS is a study about rag rug culture and the role of rag weaving in Finnish America. In a larger sense, it is also a study of how a craft can persist over centuries, reinforcing the culture, attitudes, behaviors, beliefs, and values of an immigrant group that retains a strong sense of its ethnic identity. FINNISH AMERICAN RAG RUGS provides a history of Finnish immigration to and settlement in Michigan's Upper Peninsula alongside an examination of the tradition of rag weaving in the United States and the Nordic region. Notes, references.  hardcover, 256 pages
