Red And Black Stripes Handwoven Sheep Wool Rug Custom Made
Regular price £230.00
‘There’s no place like home’ has never felt so meaningful . After a very turbulent year, themes of escapism are transforming our once private spaces, into zoom worthy emporiums of statement making furnishings and maximalist, eclectic styling. Personally I think nothing else would make your home so cosy and warm like hand woven rug. It will take you away from a rollercoaster we have all been on this year and the value and importance of comfy and snug, restful home has risen above everything. When my family from Ukraine were planning to visit me in UK, they asked what they could bring me from there. And I answered “something Ukrainian” So they sent me a link to a handmade in Ukraine website. And I found just 1 (!) Ukrainian village in the entire country that makes amazing traditional hand woven rugs from raw sheep wool on wooden looms. The craftsmanship is outstanding. Several generations of the entire family get involved in the whole process - from a much-needed sheep”s “haircut" in the Spring ( no sheep are harmed) , to removing debris, dirt and oil/ washing and carding the fleece, roving and spinning it into yarn which is then handwoven on a loom into the rug and felted in the river for extra strength. It is very physical, laborious hard work, and it takes many days to produce 1 item. I live in a very old cottage in England, and the winter is quite cold, so I ordered some rugs for my home; when I received them, they were beyond expectations. The thickness and the warmth was just what the old cottage needed! I absolutely LOVE them! So I decided to share with the world this incredible Ukrainian heritage as these rugs always will add an air of warmth and cozyness to any living space. I collaborated and co-designed with these Ukrainian makers to produce a unique range. They are perfect to complement any home interior and can be used in the living room, bedroom or dining room. They are also an ideal gift for birthdays or Christmas. These heirloom rugs are made for those who truly appreciate the natural world. It will be custom-made to your specifications.
