Surya has collaborated with the world's largest and most prestigious museum to develop its Smithsonian Collection. The exclusive compilation is comprised of 12 hand-tufted rugs made in India of 100% New Zealand wool. Each piece within this first-class collection was inspired by artifacts found within the Smithsonian's vast archives. The rugs represent a variety of cultures and historical provenances including 19th century studies of ornamental and decorative designs from Egypt, China and the Middle Ages, 18th-19th century French wall coverings, and 19th century American textiles.
Offering exquisite quality of masterly crafted rugs, while maintaining an affordable price point, this flawless hand tufted rug will embody charm and grace in any home decor. Made using a hand operated tool, strands of fiber are delicately punched onto a pre drawn canvas that hangs wide upon a frame. Allowing more unique patterns, while still preserving an admirable hand made quality, this piece offers an enticing addition to any space that will be incomparable from room to room. Lasting from three to ten years, this enticing piece is well worth any price. However, in order to retain this rug's long lasting quality, it is crucial several steps are taking during care and cleaning. High powered vacuums often pull out the back of rugs, causing sprouts and an overall unattractive appearance of a once exquisite piece. To prevent this, place your vacuum on the edge of the rug, using a low setting, or use hand held attachments when cleaning.
''Pantone'' Colors include: Cobalt (18-3920), Ash Gray (14-4201)
