On a neutral-hued background of overlapping curves of taupe and grey, bright strokes of crimson, peach, and charcoal swirl. The field, or background, is Tibetan wool; the dramatic foreground swirls are pure, high quality, Chinese silk. The lustrous silken, circular bands move and shimmer, their shade altering from lighter to darker as the rug is viewed from different directions. The effect imparts a refined luxury to the graphic design.

We start with Tibetan highland sheep's wool known as "Jampbel", which is prized for its luster, stain-resistance and durability. The wool is carefully prepared using traditional hand-spinning and hand-dyeing methods. Teams of weavers then expertly hand-knot the rug on a vertical loom for months, resulting in a distinctive rug that will increase in beauty over the years.
