It would also work well in a loft or open studio to define a space within it. It is a captivating and versatile piece for any number of design ideas.
Rugs of this quality and knot count are very few and far between. They are usually small size rugs because of the time and effort that goes into creating them.

But price aside, they are great works of art that should be valued and cherished for generations to come.
