The Arcadia Collection is hand-knotted in Jaipur, India. The yarn used is highland Afghani wool that is spun by hand, then ''hard-twisted'' by hand to give the program a uniquely ''hand-crafted'' texture. The striated patina in the line is achieved in two ways. First, the hard-twist wool does not absorb all colors with the same saturation. This provides a kind of ''sparkle'' to the finish. Second, the wool is dyed in small hand batches. The large number of dye lots used in every color increases the striated effect. After hand shearing, the rugs are given a low-luster finishing wash that removes excess clippings from the pile and helps to set the dye colors. The luster present in the collection is purely a function of the extremely high quality wool. The production techniques noted above, the simple transitional and contemporary patterns, and the subdued colors combine to give the Arcadia Collection a highly textural, organic appearance that offers incredible design flexibility.This item has been discontinued and only the size(s) listed here are available.
