We’re a husband & wife team fascinated by the art of handmade rugs. Our collection started with rugs for ourselves, but has expanded to something we are excited to share with others. We collect antique and vintage hand-knotted rugs from around the world. As a piece of art, we believe a well-crafted handknotted rug should inspire something within us, changing and shaping us to desire more than the mundanity so common in the world today. Art beckons us to slow down, to make spaces in our life where we can escape monotony. What makes rugs so fascinating is that they are tactile art, which means they’re interacted with throughout the daily and yearly rhythms of our lives.
Our goal is to help customers find a rug that they absolutely love.
A fascinatingly colorful, abrashed Akstafa Caucasian prayer rug circa 1890. The intriguing field of the rug contains alternating flowers within a lattice-work pattern, which ushers the eye toward the mihrab at top of the rug. A wonderful rug for a bedside, hallway, or to accompany a coffee-table seating area.
