Wool Persian Fern Rug
If you're looking for a traditional area rug that has more personality than most of its kind, consider our Persian Fern Rug. Featuring repeated thick and thinner rectangular borders, your eye is drawn to the rug's central design. An orb like shape known as an "ogee" repeat frames tightly packed flowers and foliage; resembling styles from the arts and crafts movement and specifically, the work of artist William Morris. The construction blends black, brown, cream, rust and olive color tones. Made of 100% hand tufted wool.
A hand-tufted rug is created without tying knots into the foundation, but rather by pushing wool or acrylic yarn through a primary backing, called a tuft. Next, using a latex glue to hold the tufts in place, a rugmaker will apply a secondary foundation, or scrim, which is then covered by a third and final cloth backing to protect your floor. The final step involves shearing the tops of the looped tufts to create the pile. The height of the pile is determined by how much yarn is cut off, and how far the initial loop was pushed up. Use of rug liner and professional cleaning recommended. Imported.
