2.25 x 3 M (7' x 7'3")
In many ways this rug subverts one's expectations of what a flatweave should be and what a silk rug should be. It uses vertical lines and small circles, design choices traditionally avoided in contemporary flatweaves. It also makes virtues of the resulting dovetails and irregularities, putting the weaver's artistry up-front.
The silk is matte, not shiny and the surface of the rug is very textured rather than the smooth surface traditionally associated with silk. This is the result of the use of Matka silk, which is produced by harvesting the silkworm cocoon after it has metamorphosed.
