The colors in the carpet will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.

Flower in the wind Handtufted
The inspiration for my CarpetVista submission was inspired by nature. It should resemble a flower blowing in the wind - with colour circle.
Flower in the wind Handtufted carpet from India.
Handtufted carpets are made by hand using high quality raw materials, but rather than having knots that need to be tied, a special ”tufting gun” is used to push loops of yarn through a scrim (pre-woven backing).
The last stage in the production is trimming the pile to the desired length, thereby exposing the thread ends for a softer pile.
This technique allows for a quick and effective process and gives the weaver more freedom and range to create detailed patterns and shapes otherwise restricted in handknotted carpets. The end result is a long lasting high quality carpet at an affordable price.
Wool is a natural textile fibre and one of the most sought after materials for rug making. Wool rugs are highly durable and perfectly capable of resisting wear and tear of every day use. Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.

I wanted a genuine Indian type rug at a good price to go on a wooden floor in front of the hi-fi system. I came across Carpet Vista in the search and they had a good range on their site at very reasonable prices. I eventually decided on an Afghan which was the design and size I was looking for. It was received promptly via Fedex and I am very happy with it. I would recommend Carpet Vista - don't be put off by the prices showing in euros, there is a sterling converter button on the home page.

Should be five stars but.....
I am happy about the quality, it looks and feels a touch of luxury in my modern and fairly minimalist home. The colour was described as white but is really beige. It still works with my white walls and bamboo wood floor, but I would have preferred it in a grey shade of white rather than a brownish shade of white. Drop a half point as I know how difficult colour description can be. The carpet was well protected with plastic and strong bands, but had been folded for a long time and was tightly packed. I am struggling to persuade it to lie flat, I had it upside down for a couple of days, and also trying steam but the folded ridges are very obvious still. A Pity it was not rolled rather than folded. Another half point down, so four stars rather than the five which the carpet itself probably deserves.
Easy order, large choice Perfect
Great carpet and service
