This rug is a modern “sketch”of the traditional suzani motif. This traditional northern Afghan and Uzbek motif comes from the word “suzan” meaning needle, as many of these floral motifs were originally hand-embroidered onto hand-woven textiles. This rug embodies a mixture of free style drafts of an ancient, time-honored motif.
With this particular rug, we found inspiration in the raw, undyed product by examining the array of colors found in a single sheep's coat.. This collection pays tribute to the primitive landscape, looking beyond initial observations and finding intricacy and beauty in form, function and hues. From all-natural, un-dyed wool to the hand-spinning and hand-weaving of this majestic rug, it is sure to be a talking point on sustainability in design!
Made with fine quality, long staple Ghazni wool, this rug is hand-knotted using the Turkish Knot technique (see more about our process) resulting in a beautiful abrash pattern that gives our rugs an added visual texture. Each rug yields a luxurious hand, and is comfortable to walk or sit on.
