Custom works: Kamero in silk, penthouse Waterloo
Fresh of the loom is one of our finest custom rugs to date – the Kamero in pure silk. The project was for a private client that needed a round rug to be placed under a dining table in their penthouse in Waterloo, NSW.
The rug design chosen for the project was the Kamero from the exclusive collection at Ziga Rugs. The rug was an abstract “Pollack-style” artwork design which we felt would offset the clean lines of the white floor tiles and surrounding furniture. While the original design was woven with wool, hemp and silk, the client adored the aesthetics of silk and hence opted for a pure silk rug. The design team at Ziga Rugs re-designed the rug in pure silk; in a round shape meet the requirements of the client.
The rug was hand-knotted in Nepal using pure Chinese silk to ensure the beauty and softness of fine silk, while providing the durability seen in hand-woven rugs.
The results were even better than expected and the client had only one word to describe the rug – “stunning”!
