Very difficult photographing this silky white rug in bright sunlight. The true colors are best represented in some of the CU photos. The carpet will show much better in soft interior lighting.
Silky white, mauve and muted gold are the primary colors. Striking handwoven contemporary style rug from Nepal.
Condition is mint and the rug appears unused. Soft and fairly thick.
Side cords and cotton fringes are in superb shape.
Contemporary or modern style carpets tend to showcase uncluttered fields and minimalist designs. They often work better with mid century, modern or contemporary styles and decor than the more baroque and intricate floral Persian carpets of yesteryear.
Woven primarily from natural wool and cotton. The weaver has added a silky fiber in some areas, probably mercerized cotton. The weavers in Kayseri, Turkey also weave a silky feeling rug using mercerized cotton. (Natural silk is extremely expensive.)
Woven in Nepal, which has a rich history of handmade carpet weaving. Most of my rugs are Persian but I have a few from Nepal, Turkey and other carpet weaving regions of the world.
This is a solid rug that can handle lively foot traffic anywhere in the home.
This rug could work well in a range of decors, including modern and mid-century.
Exact size is 7 ft. 3 ft. 5 ft. 1990s — to present.
Shipping is a very low $34 within continental U.S.
