The Raika Rug

24.04.16

Coming soon, as part of our new ‘Curated Collection’ is the The Raika Rug.  Wendy spotted this beautiful hand-knotted rug on her recent trip to Delhi and fell in love. Her instant reaction was that she wanted to offer it to you too. So that is what she is doing. This seedling of an idea has grown into a new collection, ‘The Curated Collection’ which will feature rugs personally chosen on her travels. The rugs will reflect her style and her attention to detail, beauty, luxury and colour.

The Raika Rug is made of wool and silk. The wool is sourced from nomadic desert sheep of the great Indian Thar desert.  Life spent under the strong, hard sun means their wool becomes soft and shiny and is the perfect background for the gorgeous sari silk used for the motifs. The sari silk is made up of old saris, so is recycled & eco friendly.

It is hand knotted to 6/6 quality.
