This modern design features a royal purple background with a sea foam tropical motif that seems to float above it. It is hand-knotted in a gorgeous blend of allo, Chinese silk and Tibetan wool, giving the piece a soft feel and luminescent look. The plush feel is due to the sumptuous 100-knot-per square inch density and 3/8" pile height. 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.
