Handmade rugs are a chronicle of civilization.
Today, they testify about the fusion of global culture.
Persians copy European styles. The Chinese adapt Persian symbols,
which came to Persia with Genghis Khan. American traders set up Himalayan
workshops, and help relieve the suffering of the Tibetan people.
Traditions evolve. Meaning persists.
New ways travel at the speed of sound.
The soul of the rug lives on.
