Aura is a rug produced in the Kathmandu valley in Nepal.
These rugs are made by expert craftspeople on wooden handlooms using a balanced blend of Ngari wool, a quality twisted yarn from a small region of western Tibet, and a blend of Tibetan wool and bamboo silk.
The glossy and matt effects achieved by using vegetable silk and wool, which respond differently to the light, produce a refined and subtle monochromatic finish.
The border, skillfully finished with scissors, completes the rug and adds a touch of elegance. The entire rug production process is performed by hand, from carding the raw materials to weaving right through to finishing.
