GEOFFREY BRADFIELD. I must confess that we don‘t use standard‘ rugs on our projects. Custom rugs are a signature in our interiors. However, we do use sisal rugs, which are not expensive, and these can cost between $5,000-$10,000 for that size.
The rug, a beautiful and richly designed piece, is believed to have been made in Mongolia, featured a hand-knotting technique called Ghiordes that is still in use today. Even though it is argued by some historians that the first woven pile rugs were made in Mongolia, it is widely agreed that it is the Persians who perfected it.
Our most primitive cave drawings, scriptures, and novels showcase numerous references to these rugs. Some of the processes still used today were created thousands of years ago, and handed down through instructional writings and drawings.
