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

The Volcano Rug was created by shining different coloured lights onto a three-dimensional polygonal surface. This was inspired by the play of light and shadow on rocks at dawn. This method can be used to create numerous patterns that are different in colour and shape.
Volcano Rug 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.

Very fast delivery. Quality as expected, I am very satisfied.
One of the best service out there. The carpet was delivered to my home one and a half day after I ordered. To Iceland!

Woollen hand knotted carpet
The colour and the patteri of the carpet is Lovel, the fabric also. The lack of one star is because, there is a ’Wave’ in the carpet, which I believe has accured, when the carpet has been stored folded. I, however, trust that it will disappear after the carpet has layed on the floor for a while.
Super! Really nice rug, really fast shipping! What else could one ask for?
Certificate provided. Quick delivery
Never ever saw such fast delivery and especially of a bulky item. Product as described. Excellent packaging. Ordered Friday and received a large carpet Monday morning. Can't even explain how that is possible (it was not a flying carpet :) ).
