This subtle, yet sophisticated design features a butter yellow wool background with a transitional dot pattern in a complementary hue of pale yellow silk. This superior-quality hand-knotted rug is made from Tibetan wool with Chinese silk accents. 100 knots per square inch, 3/8" pile height. Hand-knotted, with a cross-woven foundation.
Artist and rug historian John Kurtz founded New Moon in part to preserve and promote the age-old traditions of Tibetan crossed weaving, a laborious method that results in a dense, durable rug that will maintain its regal beauty for generations. Each rug is handwoven in Nepal, free from child labor, using the finest Tibetan wool and Chinese silk. The inspiration for each rug varies, from classic Persian motifs to Navajo patterns to abstract designs inherent in nature, but each bears the unmistakable elegance and power of true artistry.
