What Have We Here ?
Before he was cutting the rug across glittering nightclubs and sold out shows, Baby Blue Eyes was crawling the carpet, this carpet to be exact! The Dolly Sinatra Kilim Rug is a rare and verified collectible piece that lends an intimate experience of one of America’s most iconic musicians into our own homes. Owned by Frank Sinatra’s mother, Dolly, an ardent activist for immigrants' and women’s rights, this rug has a narrative and lion motif that is both symbolic of its previous owner’s activism, yet still very timely today. We are proud to offer this rare collectible textile where artistry and history are woven into its woolen canvas.
How to Use It ?
We couldn’t imagine a better example of a true statement piece than this textile, given its previous owner and the design in and of itself. As such, we recommend placing this rarified work in a living room (on the floor or even hanging on a wall) in order to relay its origins and admire what joys long-lasting design can provide for us after decades of use.
Why It Matters ?
Kilim rugs are handwoven in a tight, flat pattern making them extremely durable. Thanks are due to the wise weavers who chose this sustainable, timeless technique so that we can preserve and, most importantly, enjoy this tapestry of both art and American culture for decades, if not centuries, to follow.
