DESCRIPTION: Ashton is a beautiful, distressed area rug. Doroshes use a double-wefted variation of of the asymmetrical knot, which (without getting too technical) offers a padded underfoot feel. Doroshes are known for their richly colored designs. This rug is unique for its dark field and otherwise muted colors, though a rich fuchsia border still remains. This rug's foundation has been stabilized and repaired, but wear is still obvious and part of its appeal. Pattern, color variation, and signs of wear with vintage items is normal.
