"The lines and dots have been lifted from my Anemone leaf wallpaper design. I realised on playing around with them that as I strung them out, they began to look like beads on a necklace or abacus." Neisha Crosland.
The background of this rug is silk, with the wool motif in a loop pile.
This rug is entirely handmade, using a special weaving technique. The background is knotted by looping directly around the warp and weft, giving a flat but highly tactile finish. The silk motif is knotted in a soft short pile, which gives the pattern unique definition. We use only the finest natural yarns; the Tibetan wool for its softness and durability, the fine silk for its delicate lustre that enhances the design of the rug. The result is a unique hand knotted contemporary rug of extraordinary beauty, which will itself become an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
