Samarkand is a hand-knotted rug made of the highest quality hand-spun New Zealand wool. The wool is dyed with natural dyes, which were obtained from walnuts, pistachios and the Kermes beetle. The design of this rug are mysterious and filigraphic motifs from Persia and the Caucasus. During the final treatment, the carpet is washed in a special tea bath, which gives this carpet a specific patina and shine. Made in the Indian region of Aurai.
