Product Information

Details

This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. One name associated with English rugs is William Morris, who was an artist, writer, designer, and social activist. His designs included floral motifs with arabesques, influenced by Persian styles. The dominant colors used in William Morris designs were blues and reds. Many 18th century rugs even copied the ceiling designs of the rooms for which they were commissioned. The knot count for this rug is 280. This rug is made of 100-percent wool. The pile height is 0.25 inches. Colors include green, beige, gold and brown.

Story Behind the Art:
These William Morris designs were originally made between 1878 and 1881, however these designs are still among the European designs copied by China, Pakistan and India. This particular rug design was copied and re-created by skilled village weavers in the northern parts of Afghanistan. Herat Oriental has been providing beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs to Worldstock for over 10 years. Worldstock has given us the opportunity to create jobs for over 2,000 local village weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow with Worldstock, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.

Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.

All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.
