This hand knotted pile rug is made with all handspun wool background and sari silk highlights. It was woven in a small cottage industry weaving project were all weaving takes place in individual weaver’s homes. The background color is all wool. The meandering lines of damask design are woven using remnant, re-spun silk from the mill ends of sari looms. Sari silk is varied and irregular and carries some of the residual colors of the saris they would have been. The variation of tone and texture along with the natural shine of silk work in unison to create a visual feast. This luxurious and sophisticated modern rug is a beauty to the eye and so soft to the touch. FREE Shipping and Easy Returns.
