Doris Leslie Blau Collection Geometric Blue, Gray and White Flat-weave Wool Rug N11856 12'7" × 18'0" $12,800
Contemporary wool flat weave rugs enjoy unfaltering popularity and looking at this exquisite piece it is easy to understand why. Woven by hand using best available materials, it sports a fascinating pattern. While it is constructed of several elements triangles seem to be the main element here. Made of straight lines of varying lengths, they create a very modern composition. Color palette accompanying the pattern is very modest, but suits it perfectly. The mix of dark blue and clear white has a calming effect, but also helps to bring out the beauty of the whole.
Although the majority of people associate carpets with certain shagginess, modern shag rugs constitute a substantial part of the profound weaving heritage. Flat, hand-woven rugs have widely contributed to the development of rug-making techniques as they represent one of the basic forms of woven textiles.
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.
