Marmalade tabbies appear as optical illusions on a beautiful accent rug. Depicted in hand-loomed wool, the cats seem to climb a staircase. The rug is a creation of the Curi Brothers, who work on a traditional loom.
I wish I could give fractional stars. This is close to a 5 star object -- it certainly is in terms of design. As an experienced spinner, weaver, and fiber arts judge myself, I have found 2 (out of probably 100+) loose ends of tapestry joins not worked in, and find the warp a little thin for optimum durability. I nonetheless love the piece and display it proudly. I would be glad to buy more from these weavers in the future. As a fellow weaver, I can suggest that dyes permitting, they should experiment with fulling the piece so that the above issues cease to be a problem.
