Vintage Kashmir Silk 'Tree of Life' Rug - 4'2" x 5'11"
Kashmir silk carpets are hand-knotted in India, and are modelled on traditional Persian carpets. The patterns in the carpets consist partly of medallions and repeating patterns, but with the typical garden motif. This one of a kind special example is a detailed illustration of the Tree of Life.
Kashmir rugs are very high quality and thanks to the choice of material (100% silk), they are thin and light, with a beautiful shimmering lustre. Using silk also makes detailed patterns possible and the precision in the work behind the carpet is impressive.
