From the Inventory: Deniz, Oushak Kelim

Posted in: All Rugs Kelims rugs Oushak rugs

Deniz is one of our Oushak Kelims, created by combining the flat weave of a kelim with the raised pile of traditional Oushak knots. An oversized abstraction of a zebra print and lack of a border make this a thoroughly modern rug.

The naturally occurring undulation of color throughout the rug, or abrash, softens the lines and creates an effortless flow between the high and low textures of the rug.

It took five indigo plants and lots of olive straw to achieve the many blues throughout this rug.  

 

Deniz is an Oushak Kelim, combining the flat weave of a kelim with the raised traditional knots of an Oushak. The undulating hues of blue and cream are using indigo plants and olive straw.

Deniz is a wonderful breath of fresh air in modern rug design and a perfect example of the impeccable skill and artistry that goes into each rug.
