The Wiltshire is an Archibald Knox design using striking longitudinal symmetry to create a central focus for a room while retaining primary design interest on the periphery. A warm brown ground with spruce green, light yellow gree, soft golden-brown and pale blue accents.
Our rugs are hand knotted in northern India. They are produced on upright wooden looms that reflect a handcraft dating back for more than 1,000 years. A typical 8' x10' rug will have upwards of 575,000 hand-tied knots. All our rugs are woven with 100% New Zealand wood. The rugs use Swiss Chrome dyes versus traditional vegetable dyes, to ensure color-fastness and consistent color from rug to rug. Every effort has been made to authentically reproduce Arts & Crafts rug patterns from the period. As with the originals period rugs, knot density is a direct reflection of design complexity. Open patterns with large scale designs usually require 50-80 knots/inch. More intricate designs are higher. Given the hand made nature of each rug, sizes are approximate.
The Red Wiltshire rug has limited availability. Please call for size options and pricing.
