'EXPEDITION' NOMADIC CAMEL WOOL RUG
Handmade in: India
Width: 3.9 ft
Length: 6.1 ft
Material: 100% Camel Wool
Featuring: Nomadic camel wool weaving process. Traditionally this technique was used to make camel saddle bags on a nomadic loom. The loom is a extremely simple and portable and can be easily set up anywhere. Since there is a lot of hand-work involved and the rugs are made using almost no mechanization, the design possibilities in these are much wider than in rugs made on the traditional pit-loom and frame-looms.
Another interesting fact is that all the wool yarn used is undyed, the black, white, grey and sand colours are the natural sheep hair colour which gives these rugs a very earthy and sophisticated feel.
Detail: Fringe at both ends
