In addition to inheriting its name from the exotic peafowl bird, this Pavo Cristatus wool carpet is ready to fly and nest into your living room. Its bright and lively colors make a bold statement in any room. Like a ray of sunshine, it brings it to life.

Hand-knotted in Afghanistan by individual artisans, this one-of-a-kind rug is made from hand-spun pure wool and then over-dyed to create a remarkable chromatic composition. Each Pavo Cristatus carpet transforms new, luxurious wool rugs into exotic works of art that feature unique tonalities and patterns brought to life through intense color.

Harnessing the natural energy of the sun, each piece is organically neutralized from its original color, over-dyed and carefully hand-washed to produce a revolutionary work of art.

Why do we provide you with two global shots of the same carpet?
When you are standing in front of the pile (fine hairs) of this rug it will look a shade darker. However, when you are standing in the opposite direction of its pile, it will look a shade lighter. This is a common occurrence in fine hand-knotted rugs. It is also the reason we are showing you two global pictures of this carpet (one picture for each side depending on where you are standing). This feature is an interesting aspect of a handmade rug. It provides its owner with the opportunity to change up the look of their space just by changing the way the rug is placed in the room.

Materials & Craftsmanship:
This diligently hand-knotted area rug is made of 100% pure lamb’s wool. Wool is a natural material, representing a healthy choice that is environmentally friendly with a long list of benefits. The pile of this wool rug is hygienic and non-allergenic, as the natural pile also deters the growth of bacteria and dust mites. It represents a great choice for asthma sufferers due to its natural filtering ability. The rug feels soft under the foot while remaining wear-resistant and long-lasting. With proper maintenance tailored to its needs, this rug can last over 75 years.
