But they are expensive. I cannot bear to step on thousands and thousands of dollars worth of such art pieces. :P
i agree. They look expensive. I cant imagine my new dog pooing it it!
This scene definitely looks familiar. The carpet specialist shop in Turkey isn't? I visited it when I made a trip to Turkey in 2007. The carpets were amazing and very expensive too.
These are beautiful rugs! Happy WW :)
ECL,i can't afford those luxuries too. there is nothing more satisfying than seeing them and taking pictures!
Hi stan,it’ll be a pain to clean that up.
Mei Teng,Precisely. Did you blog about it? I'd love to see your pics.
Hi Sue,Thanks for visiting my WW. I'll visit yours soon. :)
Those are so beautiful. I spent £250 on a rug in Tunisia 20 years ago, It is still in marvellous condition. Happy WW
jams,The silk rugs feel fabulous on your barefeet. they are unbelievably beautiful but rather expensive.
Didn't blogged about it but I love the carpet tour...fabulous work. Did you see them dunking the silkworm cocoons into boiling water?
Mei Teng,it was pretty amazing to see how the fabric was retrieved from the silkworm cocoons.
i love the one that looked like a safari painting. will probably make the room looks very alive. :D
levian,yeah,the dining room can be turned into something great.
Hi Lori,thanks for visiting my WW! :)
Is it a must in every Turkish household?IIRC Iranians are also very proud of their carpets too. :o)
I know what you mean ECL, but, they are so beautiful. These are just so very pretty...truly a work of art.Mine is up too!Happy WW:-)
If I ever have the money to buy of of those lovely carpets, I'd put it up on the wall instead of stepping and sitting on them. Imagine the hours and skill needed for one piece of carpet. Wow!
JL,the carpets actually serve a beneficial purpose to its ppl. they would protect themselves from the extreme cold weather with these fabrics.
Hi Shinade,thanks for visiting my WW. i'll visit yours in a short while.
lina,obviously, it will burn a hole in my pocket. i'd never spend my money on such expensive items. most of the mosques are covered from wall to wall with several layers of carpets. the fabrics can be primarily hung on walls or used on tables whichever you want.
i like carpets in my house but unfortunately my mum thinks it is a hassle to clean it. oh well... i could have a virtual carpet on my desktop. :D
renaye,Keeping carpets clean can be a real hassle when you have lots of foot traffic or animals running around the house.
beautiful but it isn't easy to clean :-)
monica,i agree wholeheartedly. it's not an easy task to clean.
