Simply stunning and in perfect condition !! Provenance: Bought in Ireland at a Specialist Asian Rug Auction. Kashmir rugs: A Kashmir rug is a hand knotted oriental rug from Kashmir. Kashmir rugs or carpets have intricate designs that are primarily oriental, floral style in a range of colors, sizes and quality. . Kashmir carpets are handmade, hand knotted, and are primarily made in pure wool, pure silk and occasionally wool and silk blends. They are available in wide-ranging colors, designs and sizes.[citation needed] Kashmir rugs are primarily made in Srinagar, Kashmir in north India although a significant part of the production also comes from rural Kashmir. Kashmir rugs carry a high premium in the world of handmade, hand knotted rugs.[citation needed] Kashmir rugs are made in a range of sizes like 3'x2', 4'x2'6", 5'x3', 6'x4', 7'x5', 10'x8', 12'x9' and 14'x10'.[citation needed] Due to the intensive labor involved, larger sizes are made only on a custom-order basis. Kashmir rugs are renowned to have bright, jewel-like color tones such as sapphire blue, ruby red, emerald green, aquamarine, amethyst, and ivory. Rugs from Kashmir are traditionally made in oriental, floral designs that typically involve the significant and culturally important motifs such as the paisley, chinar tree, (the oriental plane) and tree-of-life. Most of these designs are rooted in the Kashmiri way of living and are a symbolic representation of the age-old Kashmir tradition of hospitality, warmth and genuine love. It is often said in Kashmir folklore that a home is incomplete without a soul - a Kashmir carpet, which is told to "bring the entire house together" into a unified whole.
