Sir Lowry's Area Rug

Handmade in South Africa

  • Hand woven by the Sir Lowry's Weavers

    Luxuriously soft and woven by hand from the highest quality hand spun Karakul sheep wool, this area rug brings instant warmth and texture to any room.  The high density of wool used in each piece, makes the rugs incredibly durable and the undyed neutral tones blend effortlessly into your space. Soft, cozy comfort underfoot is guaranteed.

    Traditional designs  which appear painted on the homes of the Ndebele people of south Africa have served as inspiration for the pattern on this rug.

    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.
