Tibetan Checkerboard Rug

Tibetan Checkerboard Rug

This is a timeless piece of woven art. Alternate squares of a very dark blue, and an undyed ivory wool. Subtlety and texture are provided by the abrash in the colour and the slight variation in each of the squares. This rug is engaging, mesmerising and totally cool. The wool quality also suggests to me that this is a very old example which probably dates to the last quarter of the 19th century.
