Striped Karakul Rug

Handmade in South Africa

  • Hand woven by the Sir Lowry's Weavers

    This area rug has been hand woven out of the highest quality hand-spun Karakul wool. The high density of wool used in each piece, gives the rugs an incredibly durable and at the same time, luxuriously soft texture. A simple stripe decorates each end and the natural, undyed neutral colors blend effortlessly into any space. Comfort underfoot is guaranteed.

    Each rug has been handwoven by a single master weaver. Each artisan has the opportunity to determine her own work hours, allowing for work-life balance and flexibility. The entire process from spinning to weaving to knotting is done by hand with incredible care, dedication, and time.

    Woven to order, uniquely for you.
