This item is part of the Abstract Art Rugs modern collection which is a range of truly unique carpets. The rugs are made of 100% wool, which is embroidered onto a lightweight soft cotton canvas backing. The method of construction used is known as chain stitching; this is an ancient technique of rug making, which produces stunning and vivid details. The rugs are similar to flat-woven and chenille rugs in terms of flatness, but are much more luxurious and durable. The collection features a wide range of contemporary designs, which fuses ultra modern with an ancient method of construction and ultimately producing individual pieces of art. Please note that the rugs in this collection do not have a hard backing and as such can be used as throws or wall hangings.
