One-of-a-kind art Persian rug release

Now, something a bit different… I recently teamed up with Art in Rug a truly authentic handmade Persian rug company that is making one-of-a-kind art rugs.
Each rug is an edition or one. Made to order. They will take months to hand weave each rug with the highest quality by the best Persian rug artisans to deliver to just “one” collector. Once sold, rug design retires and never will be remade again.
I’m used to living in the illustration world where my job is to create artworks for an often large number of reproductions. So this is a whole new kind of cool experiment for me.
Size: 150 x 200cm with the price point around $4k USD (please inquire, as this is a ballpark).
(the photos are just mockups to show the general size and look. The actual handmade rug won’t exist till someone actually purchases it. It will be made to order. Thank you!)
