Here are a few things I know about the anatomy of rugs.
some of the rugs that have a central focus have contoured areas at the four right angles of the field adjacent to the borders. this is called the spandrel or the corners.
there are narrow stripes , either plain or patterned, within the border arrangement, that are often indistinguishable from the minor borders. these are called the guard strips
ONLY UNBLEACHED HAND-SPUN WOOL FROM THE HIGH MOUNTAIN
OF AFGHANISTAN IS USED TO MAKE OUR CAMAS RUGS.
IT COMES FROM OUR OWN SHEEP AND IS MINIMALLY PROCESSED
FROM START TO FINISH TO PROVIDE THE MOST ORGANIC,
SUSTAINABLE, AND BEAUTIFULLY SOFT WOOL WHICH
THE FOUNDATION AND SOUL OF OUR GREAT RUGS.
FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, NATURAL VEGETAL DYES HAVE PROVIDED
THE SOURCE OF COLOR FOR THE WORLD'S GREATEST WEAVINGS.
WE ARE CONTINUING THIS LINEAGE WITH CARE.
CENTRAL ASIAN TRIBAL WEAVERS HAVE MADE SOME OF
THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER RUGS IN HISTORY.
OUR WEAVERS CONTINUE THIS ANCIENT TRADITION.
