Doris Leslie Blau Collection Modern Traditional Oriental Inspired Wool Rug

$ 35,000
  • Description
    This contemporary rug was modeled on the fabulous carpets from Tabriz. Being probably the oldest functioning weaving center in Persia, Tabriz boasts a plethora of designs yet the one before your eyes – a subtle grid of botanical motifs, without a medallion –  is one of the most popular and most commonly associated with the place. The main field is occupied by bold palmettes, complemented by florals and vines. Everything is enclosed within a border maintained in the spirit of the main design, with further palmettes and delicate florals. The color palette featuring blue, brown, orange and touches of purple against the beige background is versatile and pleasant to the eye. Although presently made, the rug matches the incredibly high standards of traditional Persian craft. It was thoroughly hand-knotted of wool by a skilled artisan. If properly maintained, the rug will serve its owners for generations, being the centerpiece of every décor. Doris Leslie Blau combines the best of the past and the present in order to create perfect rugs of the future. We use centuries-old weaving techniques to ensure quality, and we also get inspiration from well-established, classic designs that are the foundation on which we confidently build the castle of our creativity. Due to such an approach, our contemporary rugs span the greatness of venerable antiques and the freshness of modern aesthetics. 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.
