Stately in its first impression, Mamluk designs reign in the rug world as some of the most ancient patterns and colorways combine in an intriguingly mesmerizing design. Its square shape only serves to enhance the geometry it so boldly announces in modern-day construction by Turkmen women from Afghanistan using highly-prized hand-spun vegetal-dyed Karagul wool.

Three tribally-inspired patterns communicate a rich heritage of Bokhara designs meant to enrich the user with traditions and history to be relished during their family gatherings and relayed to the next generation. Octagonal gul medallions express desire and hope for beauty in a rugged world. Hand-knotted by Turkmen weavers in Afghanistan.

March 2017 ~ Tibetan Style

Imbued with traditional chrysanthemum and lotus blossoms extracted from a late 19th century Tibetan design in a border-free canvas, our creative spirit is unleashed while gazing upon the Tibetan-styled carpet handmade with hand carded and hand spun Tibetan wool dyed with vegetal materials. Gently abrashed ground of sky blue thrusts the iconic motifs front and center in various hues and sizes, bedazzling the homeowner afresh. Terrific for a stylish tea or breakfast room.

 

 

April 2017 ~ Gabbeh

April 2017 - Gabbeh

Gabbeh rugs were originally designed freely by Qashqa’i weavers who were exposed daily to four seasons surrounded by traditional landscapes as they herded livestock to summer pastures. These particular patterns celebrate each stream, rocky crag and meadow encompassing their daily life and using handspun wool from their own sheep.

May 2017 ~ Bakshaish Style

May 2017 - Bakshaish Style

When tribal motifs meld with a classically laid out design with guard borders, spandrels and medallions, what serendipity to behold! This Bakshaish rug incorporates simple animal shapes which let your imagination flow from swans to peacocks, from camels to goats laid directionally.  The corner spandrels peek to a blue sky layer transporting the view to past worlds lending truth to the term “magic carpet”.

June 2017 ~ Ningxia Style

June 2017 - Ningxa Style

(Click image for largest available view)

Always graceful yet sturdily designed, Ningxia rugs with their “Three Blues” on a blonde background strike a chord with designers. New production finds these in room sizes and sheered low to look like high value antiques. Vines and butterflies dance directionally throughout the pattern uncharacteristically without a center or symmetry. Perfect for a room near a garden. Hand-knotted in China.

July 2017 ~ Contemporary

Superbly designed to mimic the complexity of large bodies of water, contemporary carpet craftsmen bring this essential element into our homes. Our senses are at once calmed and stimulated by the depth presented in a hand-knotted carpet from Nepal by Tibetan weavers using handspun vegetable dyed blended Himalayan and New Zealand wools. This rug would be stunning in a special meditation space.

August 2017 – Heriz Style

Finely woven Northwest Persian Serapi-Heriz design from Afghanistan typically made in only a few sizes in Iran, now available in shapes and sizes suitable for the American home. Featured in a highly-prized ivory ground designed to brighten a wood paneled room, gorgeous abrash deepens the richness of the blues and brick tones.

Showcasing divergence in traditions, note the new Turkish production Shirvan featuring muted colors on the left, while the antique Kazak on the right with bold striking dyes is as vibrant as when it came off the loom in the late 19th century. Now the colors are balanced and the patterns intriguingly symmetrical without being identical end to end. One-dimensional birds and goats pique a collector’s interest. It is easy and fun to combine antiques with new rugs in the same room or office space.

October 2017 ~ Suzani Style

October 2017 - Suzani Style

Magnificently-rendered into a carpet from a Central Asian, Suzani-inspired textile tradition, this handmade carpet is transpired from natural dyes and handspun New Zealand wool. Note the motifs are not fully formed in the major border, just like the original textile which was embroidered in silk onto a linen backing, a bride-to-be may have been too distracted to perfectly align her dowry cover. The sun-kissed wheaten color of the background proves appropriate to show-off the bold reds of the medallions.

November 2017 ~ Qashqa’i Style

November 2017 - Qashqa'i Style

Nomads weave their surroundings literally as well as symbolically into their treasured rugs. Ever popular bird motifs completely dominate the field of this Qashqa’i-styled rug, destined to be a favorite throughout a traditional North American home. Defined by an intense indigo blue field framed in a light blue/green minor border and a reddish major border, this rug will keep our attention for many years.
