Noble House (127960), 9-3 x 12-1
This rich vegetal-dye carpet of black and gold was hand knotted in India. 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.
