Doris Leslie Blau Collection High-Quality Blue Geometric Pashmina Euro Runner N11696 3'3" × 36'0" $16,000
This fabulous runner carpet is excellent in terms of design but it is not its main forte. The sublime piece was meticulously hand-woven of the finest pashmina in accordance with traditional 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 outstanding modern carpet runner. 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 was complemented by a lighter yet toned blue shade of the pattern. Although tradition-inspired, the allover ornamental trellis design perfectly fits into contemporary aesthetics and will match a wide variety of interior arrangements, from classic to modern.
Moreover, due to the thorough making, the modern carpet tiles has a chance to serve its lucky owners for many years without any signs of wear. This one-of-a-kind gem-like creation may imbue any room with its palatial glamour and timeless elegance. Within our new and custom Traditional rugs collection we have a broad selection of Samarkand rugs generally made in unusually large sizes.
