STRIPE

March 5, 2011

Surprise, I couldn’t resist posting this Great looking rug the day after the painted staircase.  I love the thread of commonality between the two.  Travel posts coming, promise…

This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the wool to the weaving on the loom. It is unique, and has been crafted by weavers in the Kathmandu area, whose skills have been passed down through many generations. We use only the highest quality wool for our rugs, that of the Tibetan sheep, for its durability, rich texture and subtle colour variation. To this the Rug Company has added the vision of a world-class designer, Paul Smith and the result is a hand-knotted contemporary rug of extraordinary beauty, which will itself become an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.  Gentle reader, you know me too well at this point I’m sure, so you know what’s coming next…. I LOVE THIS RUG (and yes I want one, did I even need to say that?).  BTW, this beauty is 100% wool hand-knotted Tibetan wool and it’s made in Nepal.
