Fine Silk Hereke Rug with Signature

Fine Silk Hereke Rug with Signature

Fine silk rugs have a special tactile quality and this piece is no exception. The softness of the silk is sensational. And one can only admire the workmanship, and the refinement of the design. The colours are subtle and complement each other so well. Note the Hereke signature in the top right hand corner. The design has the format of a prayer rug, but in fact this piece would be ideal as a piece of textile art for the wall. Elegant drawing of the birds, animals and floral forms around a central 'tree of life', this piece represents the garden of paradise.
