In this post, I’m talking about the color of a lime green rug, rather than a rug that looks like a cross section of a citrus fruit. I don’t make those. I’m listing “lime rugs” separately from green rugs because that’s how people look for them, and I’m assuming they want the color, not the fruit, because no-one searches for “lemon rugs.”
Lime is a difficult, touchy and demanding color, but wow, can it get your attention! Lime rugs are easier to live with than the equivalently bright oranges. Lime is not very common in the fiber stream and tends to follow fashion trends by three or four years. That said, once you’re tired of it, you want it gone!
Here are some lime rugs that have found homes:
Any of these can be used as starting points for a rug made to your specifications. However, because the rugs are made from recycled tshirts (among other fabrics), they can never be exactly duplicated.
