œis this a hand knotted rug?- You will think it is until you hear the price! After years of extensive research and development we are thrilled to finally introduce the world to the gossamer collection! This innovative product is exclusive to rizzy home and will for sure be a challenge for others to replicate. Gossamer is power loomed in a unique loom configuration to replicate the look and feel of handmade knots. The rich luster and soft feel is the result of using 100% washed new zealand wool. The final step that sets this collection apart from any other is that after machine production, all pieces are shipped to our hand knotted facility and hand washed using the same paddle washing and hand finishing techniques that have been used for generations on hand knotted rugs that cost 5 times as much.
