This timeless gray-colored rug is woven of organic cotton and is 100% handmade. Craftsmen from Rajasthan, India, use traditional dyeing techniques. The colors are applied by means of symmetrical pistons or wood blocks (Wood Block Printing). The dyeing process involves sinking the rug in fully vegetable gray color to make it thoroughly coloured. Then the carpet is laid out for the drying in the sun. After the carpet has become dry, they press a darker star pattern with wood blocks on it and again put the rug to dry in the sun. The process could be repeated with the same steps in order to get different shades of gray. Minor irregularities in the pattern have their own charm and testify of a handmade product.
