Design for Social Change

“Rugs give a space warmth, in the fullest sense of the word, and these rugs are very special,” said Mapi. “The artisans behind them and the handmade quality is the real definition of luxury. Each piece has been touched by hands, which means one carpet is never exactly the same as another, because it was not made by the same hand or the same eye or even mood. Machines can’t do that.”
