This rug originates from India and is designed in a contemporary style. It features an illusion pattern done in a main color of red on a rust background. The rug measures 7'11" X 10' and is a newer piece from our collection. Material composition is wool on cotton.
The rug captures attention with its textured, irregular stripe pattern running horizontally across its length. Variations in stripe thickness and color distribution contribute to a unique, multi-dimensional look. The color palette is predominantly neutral, combining grays and beiges punctuated by warmer tones of rust, brown, and blue.
The rug's edges are finished with precision, indicative of craftsmanship. The fibers display a tightly woven texture; a characteristic of flatweave design that suggests durability and adaptability to high-traffic environments. Color variation in individual yarns adds richness to the rug's overall aesthetics, broadening its compatibility with an assortment of decor styles, from contemporary to rustic.
The background of this rug is a product of a concept initiated by Teddy Sumner of Michaelian & Kohlberg, termed "Grass". The tonal patterns mirror small blades of grass, sometimes exhibiting a single tone, but often demonstrating multiple shadings, or abrash, within a same color due to the use of natural dye stuffs.
Major production of this style of rugs takes place in Agra, India, with considerations given to the employment of single or two-ply yarns, specific dyeing procedures, and distinct weaving techniques. Each rug quality carries unique characteristics and origins crucial to its customer appeal. It's important to note that this rug uses an asymmetrical Persian knot for its construction.
The design of this rug draws inspiration from fields of tall, rustling grasses. This illusion of a fade-away horizon and undulating rows of grain is subtly captured. This rug is handmade, hard-wearing, and has a soft all-wool pile. As an Agra rug, woven in the fine tradition of Indian carpet weaving, it brings a sense of historic élan to any setting.
