The Collection

Handwoven with silk thread from thousands of recycled saris, those staples of Indian culture which date back to 2800 BCE. For these rugs, silk saris are taken apart thread by thread before artisans sort them by color, and spin them into a yarn of hundreds of shades, giving it a depth and range of hues that can’t be achieved through dyeing.

The Design

An intricate, shifting geometric pattern in which delicate multicolored lines seem to be revealed from beneath a neutral ground.

Motifs
  • A minimalist, midcentury design with art deco elements
  • Diagonal lines weave and intersect, forming a grid-like pattern
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Agra, once the capital of the Mughal Empire, began its prominent weaving tradition in the 16th century, when Emperor Akbar established weaving workshops for the decoration of his newly commissioned palace.
