13 shades of red – Rug

This is a 275 x 275 cm hand tufted rug in 13 shades of red. 13 shades made of 4 colors. Each shade has a unique pile height made of the highest quality of New Zealand wool. Lighter yarn provides a higher pile height and darker yarn provides lower pile height. The rug is made out of 55×55 boxes, totally 3025 pieces. The idea for this rug arose when I putty a wall and saw how the pattern was over the bumps on the wall.
