Doris Leslie Blau Collection High-Quality Contemporary Blue Handmade Silk Rug N11534 6'2" × 8'9" $7,000
This solid color area rug exhibits pure excellence in terms of both design and execution. Its luminous, soft pile was thoroughly hand-crafted of the finest silk, which is one of the most luxurious materials on Earth. There is more than one reason for that prestige – silk is a natural fiber characterized by high tensile strength, luster, low density, good insulation and resistance to deformation as well as certain insects. Needless to say, the carpet made of this exceptional thread comprises all those properties and more.
The power of this modern piece lies in simplicity. With the pile so smooth and shiny there is no need for unnecessary excess so the only ornament is a thick navy blue stripe that runs along the borders, enclosing the light slate grey field. There is one more intriguing stir – the modern carpet tiles seems to slightly change color according to the arrangement of the pile fibers. It is hard to resist the temptation of feeling this silk beauty – it has a chance to please the eyes, hands and feet of lucky owners for generations.
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.
