The Oria Flower rug is hand-knotted from 100% wool and silk. Pile height measures 1/4 of an inch. Designer Suzanne Kasler named this rug for the founder of the Elephant Watch Camp in Kenya, a world-renowned destination for luxury accommodations and amazing up-close wildlife. The fabric for a shirt purchased by both Kasler and her daughter inspired Oria, which is hand-knotted of silk and wool in Nepal to recreate the cloth's saturated hues and geometric shapes. "The amazing contrast of the African landscape-the sky, the neutrals of the earth and the vegetation are all seen in my rug for Safavieh," Kasler says.
