Design: Tribune Tibetan Rug
Materials: 100% Wool
"Merging a love for comic book images, mid-century furniture and pop art into my work as a rug manufacturer, I came up with this design, which I titled "Tribune". I was tempted to weave the words "Zap" "Pow" and "Boom" in the rug, but decided against it."
VOTING IS NOW CLOSED ON THIS ENTRY
"The rug is hand knotted in Kathmandu, Nepal, and is GoodWeave certified, which allows me to give back to the Nepali community with every rug sale. I love the multicolor version, but I also created one in Black and white and red."
Designer: Mark Karimzadeh
Location: Carle Place, NY
