Noble House (125057), 8-8 x 12-10
This stunning rug, handknotted in India of vegetal-dyed wool, would be perfect in a Craftsman setting. The creators of these rugs give their Indian producers antique Indian, Persian and Turkish designs upon which the weavers can improvise. These one-of-a-kind rugs are 'recreations' rather than 'reproductions.' They re-create old carpets (a process which requires creativity) rather than merely copying them. You can see the abrash in the rug: variation in the colors, which is common in antique vegetal-dyed rugs. The large, bold design is dramatic and the colors are sumptuous.
