This is a beautiful textile that is hand-dyed in natural hues and dusty reds. Using traditional techniques, this rug is hand-woven and tufted and its charm lies within the imperfection, the gorgeous textures and the quirky irregularity. This shaggy rug adds a contemporary palette of warmth and textural exuberance to any space.
