Double Knot: Rugs
Under our nose. A few days ago we took a new route back to the office. As a result we passed by the windows of Double Knot on White Street and stopped in our tracks. Behind huge glass windows was the most inviting room of hand-woven rugs we have yet seen.
Double Knot is only about a year old and is the joint effort of a young couple with a passion for rugs. Murat and Maria Kupcu have set up their store to show off their rugs – from Turkey, Persia, the Caucasus and Central Asia – and to highlight their more affordable prices.
“At prices that make sense.” is their motto, and we found them to be very competitively priced. While hand made will never beat Ikea on price, they have a large selection of rugs for under $3,000 and many woven textiles for under $1000. We think this would be a great store to learn and grow with over time.
