This rug originates from Agra, India and represents a contemporary style. Exhibiting an illusion design, the rug features a two-tone pattern, reminiscent of small blades of grass. This concept, known as "Grass," was introduced by Teddy Sumner of Michaelian & Kohlberg. The design variability is created through the use of natural dye stuffs that result in multiple shadings of the same color, or abrash. The design background and the rug's main color are ivory.
The making of the rug involved specific weaving techniques with marked differences between the use of single and two-ply yarns in its structure. It was constructed using an asymmetrical Persian knot. The material composition of the rug comprises wool on cotton, signifying a blend of durability and comfort.
The rug follows the fine tradition of Indian carpet weaving; as an Agra rug, it carries certain historical connotations. Inspired by the images of tall, rustling grass fields, the Illusion rugs are characterized by subtle designs that paint a soothing visual of fading horizons and grain rows swaying in the wind. With such imagery, the rug contributes a sense of grounded familiarity and history to the dwelling it resides in. The size of the rug is 9'1" X 12'1".
This detailed production process and design concept underscore the rug's commercial value and appeal to customers. The intricacies mentioned further highlight the complexities inherent to the international rug trade.
