Mwamba Carpet.

Design: Helmut Scheufele.

This design is named Mwamba, Swahili for stone. Mwamba reflects the barren beauty of the desert: the pile unfolds like layers of rock, while the depth of dark, natural tones is accented by touches of shimmering blue. 

Low-pile carpet made from 46% wool, 39% silk and 15% nettle
