All orders will be made to order and are submitted to our factory immediately upon receipt. Because of this, they have a longer lead time than our in stock items on the site, and once an order is placed it is not eligible for cancellation, changes, or return.
A note on color: since each rug is made to order, yarn will be dyed in a single batch and for this reason colors may differ slightly from the stock image.
Please allow 45-60 days for production and 2-3 additional weeks for delivery, or a total lead time of 9-12 weeks.
Due to size and weight restrictions, we are not able to offer any custom rugs larger than 6’x9’ outside the US at this time. Any international orders over 6'x9' will be automatically canceled.
High-low pile hand tufted rug
100% TEX New Zealand wool yarn on 100% cotton woven backing
We recently relaunched our Hand Tufted Rugs in 100% Tex wool, which is comprised of only the longest and finest fibers of New Zealand wool (think of it as New Zealand wool yarn’s greatest hits). Due to its fineness Tex yarn takes color with more vibrancy and sheds much less than other wool hand tufted rugs.
Pile height ranges from ½”-¾”
Named after the first film in Nacer Khemir’s Desert Trilogy, Wanderers of the Desert (the movie) is about a schoolteacher who moves to a village in the middle of the desert to teach, but he spends all his time staring out the window. In the end he disappears into the desert.
This rug is from our Desert Trilogy rug collection. You can read about the inspiration behind these rugs, or view the lookbook here. The lookbook images shown here are from a mini diorama and so do not accurately reflect the thickness or dimensions of the rug and are for stylistic purposes only.
Our factory is Goodweave and C&F certified, and the production unit which manufactures our rugs is 100% dependent on solar energy.
