This rug represents a contemporary stylistic direction with roots firmly planted in an esteemed tradition of Indian craft. Born from the creative vision of Teddy Sumner of Michaelian & Kohlberg, this rug demonstrates the potential of the Illusion design within the realm of rug making.
Starting from the carpet's conception as a product entitled "Grass," the rug embodies the interplay between nature and craft. Its design relies on tonal patterns that echo the texture of small iron blades. Although it makes use of one or two tones predominantly, the use of natural dye stuffs permits the expression of multiple shades within the same color, a phenomenon known as abrash.
The main production of these rugs occurs in Agra, India, where the singular details of each rug's crafting are attentively monitored. Differentiating between single and two-ply yarns, perfecting the dyeing processes, and executing specific weaving techniques all constitute crucial stages in the rug's creation. An element of nuanced craft is the asymmetric Persian knot, which is evident in the rug's intricate weave.
The contemporary Illusion rugs are led by a design philosophy that aims to capture the tranquillity found in enduring natural landscapes. Against this somber olive green backdrop, subtle designs emerge, echoing fade-away horizons and rows of undulating grain. This image-rich design language aims to inspire a sense of calm and comfortable relaxation.
Following the labor-intensive hand-weaving process, the rug acquires a robust endurance that promises long-lasting wear. It boasts an all-wool pile, which contributes a comforting softness to its tactile appeal. This rug measures 4 feet by 4 feet, providing adequate coverage for your floor space while introducing a soft color palette, dominated by variations of green.
Finally, this rug carries the proud heritage of fine Indian carpet weaving. As it falls within the category of Agra rugs, it adds a touch of historical richness to its setting. The manner in which it blends modern design cues, traditional craft, and natural inspiration makes it not just a functional piece, but also a statement of artistry and craftsmanship.
