This vibrant rug comes in three sizes:
61 x 91 cm is small
91 x 152 cm is medium
122 x 183 cm is large
All of the rugs come with an option to hang them on the wall.
They are made as a fair trade product licensed through Better World Arts with Kashimiri artisans in India. Each design is limited edition.
The rug depicts the water running down the sandhills into a waterhole, where people and animals can drink from it.
These beautiful, unique rugs are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Chain stitched, using hand dyed wool and finished with a heavy cotton backing, each rug is a completely handmade piece. This project is unusual because the rug is owned by the artists, rather than licensed to a third party. A more empowering way to work, this brings many direct benefits to the artists’ and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these rugs guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.
These rugs have non-slip backing and a sleeve for hanging rod.
Please Note: As these products are handmade, there maybe minor variations in dye and design.
