This subtle, yet sophisticated design features a rich aqua wool background with a transitional dot pattern in hues of red, cobalt blue, gold silk and metallic embroidery thread. The rug's plush feel is due to its sumptuous 100-knot-per square inch density. The fiber is knotted with a crossed foundation, then washed exclusively with soap and water, using no added chemicals. This allows the natural lanolin in the wool to remain intact, meaning it will develop its own patina with use and last generations to come. A rug pad is recommended to keep this securely in place.
