SHELL is a Kilim rug. Kilim is the name for a thin, flat, tapestry-woven, graphic style rug. It is made by weaving the horizontal yarn (weft) through vertical yarn (warp). The rug is woven so tightly that the warp is barely visible. This makes for a very durable rug, that can handle weight and movement.
80% Indian wool (the weft)
20% Undyed cotton (the warp)
100% of the materials used to make SHELL are natural, which means the colours and patterns in each rug will be slightly different.
