Of the range of Jalwa rugs, the Mat-The-Basics Jalwa 2 shows the least signs of "damage." The jagged edges replicate the effect of burning, while the main body has been given a watermarked effect. It is made out of an old wool rug that has been restored, its edges hand-stitched using re-dyed/overdyed leftover yarns to match the rest of the rug.
Mat-The-Basics has pioneered a new type of carpet - refined, handmade rugs that combine innovative design with a dedication to the highest standards of craftsmanship. These carpets, inspired from contemporary shapes and colors, are created using the traditional techniques of skilled weavers including hand-tufting, hand-weaving and hand-knotting methods.
The Jalwa 2 Rug is available with the following:
- Made of reclaimed and restored old materials (100% wool)
- Hand made construction
- Hand stitched using reclaimed leftover dyed yarns
