Over a century of skill and craftsmanship is woven into each rug with multiple layers of texture, distressed areas and intricate stitching detail to give a true vintage and aged appearance. Woven in a 3 mm thick flat weave construction, each piece is hand finished with reinforced corners.

The design stands for the uneasy but exhilarating climb on the social ladder. It is the way the advertising industry pictures society: More, better, higher, richer … But the climb can be tricky even if the rungs are glittering.
