Product details

Woven by the Sir Lowry's Weavers

This piece has been hand woven out of the highest quality hand-spun Karakul wool. The high density of wool used in each piece, gives the rugs an incredibly durable and at the same time, luxuriously soft texture. The patterns on the rugs have been adapted from designs typically seen drawn on the houses in Ndbele tribal villages.

Each carpet has been woven by a single master weaver on one of the many looms at the artisan cooperative’s weaving center. Each artisan can determine her own working hours, allowing her to attend to other responsibilities when needed. The entire process from spinning to weaving to knotting is done by hand. 


> 100 % Karakul wool

> Size: 220cm(L) x 90cm (W)  - This flat weave, reversible carpet is approximately 1.5 cm thick
