New to our showroom, the White Tiger from Samad’s Animal Kingdom collection. This hand knotted, one-of-a-kind rug is crafted from the finest hand-spun wool and natural silk which gives this piece amazing depth and brilliance. Come see it in person to truly appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty.
The Samad Animal Kingdom Collection portrays the beauty and strength of animals in their wild environment. The collection was a collaboration of many artists through many stages to give an accurate depiction from the original photographs. The first step was to create a drawing that was painted with careful attention to the colors and shading true to the photograph. A knotting graph was then added to give the weavers a guide from which to work. To provide such detail, each inch of the painting had it’s own grid of exact shading and colors. The master weavers, with more than 25 years of experience, worked together to hand tie millions of knots over several months to bring the work of art to life.
Samad has been producing and importing fine handmade for over 30 years. Their many collections include a vast array of styles from Traditional to Transitional to Modern. Atiyeh Bros. is the exclusive Samad dealer in Oregon.
