Songbird Nesters

A strikingly graceful, sweeping floral pattern in glistening, high cut viscose wanders over a field of wool for a textured effect. The low-cut loop, hand knotted ground is expertly woven by hand in an ancient Nepalese construction by mature artisans in India. These true works of art are heirlooms in the making. The Floral Silhouette collection is available in the colorways sauterne, onyx, robin's egg and champagne. A 5' x 8' rug may retail for $1,499.
