Doris Leslie Blau Collection Jaipur, a Traditional Handmade Wool Rug N12076 9'2" × 12'1" $14,000
This traditional-inspired rug comes from Jaipur, a renowned Indian weaving center near Agra. Although presently made, it comprises all the finest qualities of the ancient weaving craft.
This modern rug was carefully knotted by hand of high-quality wool by an artisan who ensured its dependable and durable structure as well as qualitative pile. If maintained properly, this modern rug will have a chance to serve its owners for generations, bringing its recherché charm into any space.
In terms of design, the carpet draws richly from various oriental traditions. Its main field is covered in a geometric lattice enhanced by gentle floral and diamond motifs kept in Indian aesthetics deriving from dhurries. On the other hand, the borders bear Göz and Çengel – protective motifs that can be found not only in the Middle East but also in north-western part of Africa. This exotic appearance is emphasized thanks to the contrasting yet balanced color palette of serene blue complemented by beige, off-white, red and yellow . If given a chance, this Jaipur rug can become a statement piece in a wide array of interior décors.
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.
