Rug/Wall Hanging by Kurun Warun
These uniquely designed rugs are finished to a very high standard. Wool is used to embroider the pattern which is then stitched onto a heavy weight canvas which serves as the backing for each rug/wall hanging. The underside of the rug has been prepared with an anti-slip surface. To use as a wall-hanging, there is a fold-over on one side of each piece to allow for rods to pass through.
These beautiful unique rugs are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Each rug is a completely handmade piece. This project is unusual because the rug is owned by the artists, rather than licensed to a third party. A more empowering way to work, this brings many direct benefits to the artists' and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these rugs guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.
