Ariwork has an instantly recognisable finish. The style is endemic to Kashmir, and as such no artisan in any other part of the world has the skill to produce such magnificent embroidery. Zoom in on especially the central red panel of this rug to take in its beauty. On the top is a continuous chain stitch supported by multiple small straight stitches beneath, done using locally made crewel needles. The resulting embroidery is of signature florals that include delicately curving tendrils, superbly shaped petals, and numerous other details that are indescribably beautiful. Laying this on your floors and chilling on it on a quiet evening indoors would almost transport you to the exotic Orient.
