I just spent too much time looking through almost every thumbnail, close-up and alternate view on Lapchi’s website, a company specializing in “handwoven carpets in silk and wool”. It’s almost impossible to get a real sense of the character, quality, or even the pattern of carpets through the computer screen but I do like Lapchi’s Palampore design, above. In the carmelian color shown it’s rich and romantic without being too traditional. In lighter colorways it has an almost Arts and Crafts feel, as if adapted from a William Morris pattern book.
