DESIGN HISTORY: From the Turkish Indian Asian Collection — Carpets, tent and camel trappings, and other knotted pile textiles woven by the Turkmen tribes of Central Asia are some of the most widely admired and passionately collected of all “oriental rugs”. They are also among the most challenging to comprehend. The relative geographic and linguistic remoteness of the Turkmen coupled with a complex history of tribal movement and interaction have created barriers to the study of Turkmen weaving. Furthermore, the clues used to determine when, where, and by what tribe a rug was made — design, color palette, weave structure, and yarn — often combine in ways that fall outside the norms of identified tribal types. This carpet, which combines design features derived from certain Persian rugs, a Turkmen color sensibility, and atypical yarn usage is one of these idiosyncratic examples. The many questions still surrounding Turkmen weavings only add to their mystery and fascination. The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco holds a collection of Turkmen carpets and related trappings from Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and northeast Iran that is one of the finest in the world. The skill and artistry of Turkmen weavers is clearly evident in this key example. The majority of the Museums’ works are gifts from George and Marie Hecksher, H. McCoy Jones, Caroline McCoy-Jones, and Wolfgang and Gisela Wiedersperg.
TECHNICAL INFO: Made by a company in America who digitally scans the real hand-woven rugs using the digital artwork with a patented fibre called Lextra to coat rubber pads. The base material is a natural rubber and the fringed ends on the are custom produced at a textile mill that makes the fringe for well-known makers of full size rugs. With normal care, your Lextra MouseRug will last many years.
Size: 7.125 inches x 10.25 inches (including fringe) and 4mm thick
Best way to remove dirt, debris and other foreign objects is to use a fresh lint roller (or very sticky tape). Work the roller back and forth with firm hand pressure. You may also use a stiff brush to bring the foreign articles up to the surface and then do the final cleaning with the lint roller or sticky tape.
Our products may also be hand washed with mild soap by applying the soap to a clean sponge or rag and scrubbing the fiber surface. Avoid washing the fringe to keep its original appearance.
Rinse (again avoiding fringe if possible) and then place on a flat surface to air dry. You will find that with repeated washings the MouseRug or CoasterRug will become softer and softer to the touch.
Unlike mouse pads, with normal use and care, Lextra MouseRugs will last many, many years while retaining their original appearance and functionality. We don't know how long they last because after six years we haven't seen one wear out yet!
