Every once in a while we run across something so unique and offbeat that it stops us in our tracks. These handmade wool pillows and rugs from Eastern Europe are in that category. With all the interest now in skins and furs for interiors, these fit right in. Who could not use these floor pillows and rugs in front of their fireplace?
They are hand made by farmers who wash the sheep fur and then weave it. Once it is woven and stitched into pillows or rugs, they comb out the long fur to create the designs. The pillows are actually stuffed with wool! No textile could be more natural. We love them.
The Black Diamonds Rug design has an ivory ground with a large central design of three black diamond motifs, flanked by borders of black diamonds on the sides. The wool is not dyed, the designs use different shades of natural sheep's wool. Rugs are reversible.
