These gorgeous, hand-made rugs are based on the world famous African-American quilts by the Gee's Bend Quilters of Alabama. Currently on exhibit at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, the quilts have been shown in fine art museums across the USA. The Souls Grown Deep Foundation has donated Gee's Bend Quilts to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the High Museum in Atlanta, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Please check with these museums to learn when the quilts will be on display.

We have tried to be as faithful as possible to the original quilts in terms of color and design, but we have changed the proportions to create standard-sized rugs. The quilters receive a royalty for the use of their designs on our rugs. We are honored to work with these outstanding artists since 2002. Barbara Barran, President Classic Rug Collection, Inc.
