Tribal rugs have bold and exciting natural dye colors that are central to the crisp and contemporary look, and are famous for their durability and elegance. The vast appeal of tribal rugs is eloquently summed up by the eminent naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, who spent much time with tribal weavers while making a film about them and their art: "Today, the straightforward yet subtle creations of the tribal weavers have come to be appreciated more and more. The complexity of their meanings, the nuances of their history and traditions, and all the insights of connoisseurship, certainly enhance their fascination. But their abiding appeal rests surely on those qualities which were so treasured by their anonymous creators - a pride in craftsmanship, a joy in pattern and invention, and an unquenchable delight in color."
