Inspiration for the Desert Sands rug comes from the simplicity of the desert - dry, vast, and quiet. Its color palate is neutral and understated, yet far from dull, far from dead. In its efforts to thrive in its climate the desert has created forms, tones and textures that speak worlds to its majesty. These places shape the majority of Egypt’s landscape, making them a great part of our topographical identity.
