This wonderful Indian carpet ftom Rugs by Robinson of Atlanta, Georgia in many ways represents the state of the art of decorative carpets in our rug renaissance.
You should know about the fine Indian carpets formerly imported by Rugs by Robinson. Some are still in the market, and they are beautiful and very well made.
They are unusual in that they combine natural dyes with machine-spun wool.
They have enough variegation of color (due to their vegetal dyes) to be full of character, but are so finished and ‘polished’ (owing to their mill-spun pile) that they fit into the most formal design situations.
Haynes Robinson, the firm’s founder, abandoned India as a source of rugs and is now only weaving in Turkey and Iran.
