Imagine a carpet of naturally worn river or beach stones. It may be beautiful, but not comfortable to walk on barefoot–unless it is our new Cobble Wool rug. A producer in India makes these especially for Landry & Arcari. Last January, when attending Domotex, an international carpet and rug conference in Germany, Jeff Arcari made arrangements to have these made for us. We have just received our shipment.
Each “stone” in is a ball of felted wool, about two inches long and an inch and a half thick. The weaver sews these together to form a rug. Since the weaver decides how to combine the different colored stones, each rug is unique. We have two available background colors–pale grey and pale beige. We are thinking of other possibilities. If you have any ideas, please let us know.
We have Cobble Wool rugs available in the standard sizes starting from 2 x 3 feet to 9 x 12. The rug would look great with modern furniture in a contemporary living room or would provide extra comfort for bare feet in a bedroom.
