This rug originates from Agra, India and falls into the category of Agra rugs. The design is known as the Illusion Nomad, a product initially conceptualized by Teddy Sumner of Michaelian & Kohlberg.

The design is based on tonal patterns that mimic small blades of grass. The color scheme usually consists of one or two tones, dyed with natural dye stuffs which allow for multiple shadings in the same color, an effect known as abrash. The illusion of a horizon fading away and undulating rows of grain add a soothing quality to the subtle design.

The rug's production employs unique weaving techniques and a distinction between single and two-ply yarns. Its weave appears tight, and as an Agra rug, it likely incorporates an asymmetrical Persian knot. The rug's dyeing processes contribute to its character and uniqueness.

The size of the rug is 11'11" X 14'11". Its main color is grey with its tonal shift creating variations in lightness and darkness. This variation, combined with the rug's weave, adds a depth and dimension to its look. The surface reflects light differently, intimating an uneven cut or changing pile direction. Contrary to the traditional designs associated with antique rugs, this rug lacks distinct patterns or motifs, making it versatile enough to suit various types of interior designs.

The rug is of a rectangular shape, and its well-finished borders further denote its exemplary crafting. From the rug's image, there's a thin, hard-to-identify line at its upper portion that could either be a fold line or an embedded feature of the design.

The rug's construction is a mixture of wool on a cotton base. Its true visual display might vary slightly due to different computer screen presentations and image rendering. Its contemporary style, combined with conventional Indian carpet weaving tradition, brings an element of history and solidity to any home it adorns. The rug showcases the complexities of the international rug trade as well as the intricate processes involved in rug production.
