The Fading World collection from the renowned Flemish Weavers Louis de Poortere features an impressive selection of designs featuring the "antique" or "distressed" look wihich is currently at the forefront of interior design. The rug is woven on a jacquard loom enabling intricate detailing on what is essentially a flatweave rug having a pile height of approximately 8mm. This low pile height reduces any trip hazard and makes the rug ideal to sit under a table and chairs. The edges are hemmed to create a neat finish and the backing of the rug is treated with an antislip coating to minimise movement on the floor. This fashionable "Medallion"design cements Louis de Poortere's position at the forefront of modern rug design.The colours are a powerful combination of a deep rich shades of turquoise and silver grey.
