Overview

This carpet's design is inspired from the Alhambra Palace in Cordoba, Spain. Hand-knotted in Pakistan using centuries-old techniques, this modern wool rug features a inky black and an ivory colored zebra like patterned field and border. Harnessing the natural energy of the sun, this carpet has been organically neutralized and then hand washed in remarkable chromatic hues. Vegetable dyes and traditional crafting methods combine to create a one-of-a-kind work of art for the modern home.

A Brief History of Cordoba Rugs

Interior of the Great Mosque of Cordoba in Spain Cordoba is a city located in south central Spain and steeped in over 2,000 years of rich history - the Romans, the Visigoths, Jewish peoples, the Moors and then the Spanish all left their distinct imprint on Cordoba, making it one of the most interesting cities in Spain.

This very fine wool area rug is hand-knotted in pure wool and represents the influence of the Moors in Spain. Some of the palaces built in Spain by the Moors between the 8th and 11th century display this design on their interior walls. This design can be seen in the tile walls of the Alhambra royal palace, the fortress in Granada and the Alcazar of Seville Palace, originally a Moorish fort.
