Round Birds Rug / Tikau
Reminiscent of Nordic saga illustrations, this stunning hand-felted rug features a beautifully hand-embroidered bird motif that will bring joy to any space. In addition to its charm, this piece creates a livelihood for a few families in strife-riddled areas of the Kashmir region in India, where artisans need to work from home to ensure their safety. The embroidery technique used to make each rug is known as “Ari”, which is a style of chain stitch that is created with a specialised hook. As the rugs are handmade, each piece is unique and reflects the signature style of the artisan.
