Handwoven by artisan weavers in Egypt’s Delta region, the Gobi Rug (2012) is a modern interpretation of the desert or “waterless place,” translation of the Mongolian word gobi. Made without chemicals or dyes, the 100% virgin wool is woven into stripes of cream and grey, which are the natural colors of the sheep native to the area. Naturally processed using ancient materials and techniques, Gobi celebrates the time-tested practice of artisan rug making. The low pile of the Gobi Rug allows it to be placed anywhere because it will not interfere with the opening and closing of most doors. Rug pad recommended. Made in Egypt.
