Doris Leslie Blau Collection Art Deco Design Tibetan Handmade Wool and Silk Rug N11200 12'9" × 15'0" $23,000
This Deco design-inspired contemporary Tibetan rug is hand-knotted in wool and silk and features an all-over design of elaborate interlocking geometric abstractions composed of faded white lines against a field of cool dark brown. The alternating concentric circular and square shapes create an immediate effect of an optical illusion, which then reveals the startling attention to detail and minimalist precision that make this Art Deco carpet patterns unique. Inspired by the abstraction and modernity of European Art Deco, the carpet is a fine example of contemporary home decor. Tibetan and Nepalese rug making is an ancient, culturally specific craft that can be traced back to roughly the 17th century. Typically made from Tibetan highland sheep wool called ‘changpel,’ the finest Tibetan and Nepalese modern rugs are hand-woven for a high quality, unique final product.
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.
