Doris Leslie Blau Collection Navy Blue Handcrafted Pashmina Euro Rug N11703 8'9" × 12'8" $14,500
This exquisite modern rug amazes not only with its elegant, oriental-inspired design but most importantly, with the outstanding quality. The sublime piece was thoroughly hand-crafted of the finest pashmina in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan who had to know exactly how to handle such a valuable material. Pashmina is a high quality cashmere wool which was first made into a textile in the famous Kashmir region.
Its Persian name literally translates into “soft gold” which fully reflects the nature of this heavenly thread and may help one visualize the palpable sensation evoked by touching its ultimately soft and sheen texture. It also aptly describes the character of this fantabulous traditional today rug. Its pile is a sheer pleasure for the senses that pampers eyes, feet and hands in equal measure. The subtle pashmina threads were colored with natural dyes which is confirmed by a slight Abrash effect visible in some areas of the field. The deep sapphire hue of the background is complemented by a lighter yet toned blue shade of the pattern. The entire field of the contemporary area rug is covered in an allover stylized trellis which will infuse any interior with recherché charm and elegance. Although traditional-inspired, the design perfectly fits into contemporary aesthetics and will match a wide variety of interior arrangements, from classic to state-of-the-art.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of original modern rugs in many styles and materials. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
