The contemporary design of the Aqua Pulse is created using a unique loop & loop cut technique. Rows of wool are alternately left with a full loop while others are cut short, creating the ultimate centerpiece of depth and rich texture. The two tonal effect of aqua and light aqua color creates the distinctive pattern. The cotton foundation and backing makes the rug extremely durable while the 1/2 inch thick wool pile makes it soft to the touch. Handmade by talented artisans of Northern India, this beautiful rug will show well for years. This rug is a versatile, stylish, and environmentally conscientious choice as it is made from 100% natural fibers.
