    and this is not the first time it has happend.

    a similer project from erly this year...

    RuggedArt is a new project, weaving together the fresh ideas of the
    underground art scenes of New York and London, with the thousand
    year old traditional techniques of Nepal.
    Founded by London based antique textile specialist Nat Turner,
    and collaborating with some of World's most exciting graphic artists,
    RuggedArt has launched a groundbreaking new collection of hand
    knotted rugs, available in limited editions of ten.
    The rugs are made entirely by hand, using traditional skills in the
    Kathmandu valley of Nepal. Knotted in hand-spun Tibetan wool, using
    the finest Swiss dyes, they are crafted to last a lifetime. Prices range from
    $22.50 to $50.00 per sq. ft.

    The concept of RuggedArt came to Nat through his knowledge of traditional
    textile art and his involvement in the New York and London street scene
    The explosion of graffiti and graphic design influence has created a new
    aesthetic and the time is right to create new pieces to reflect this shift.
    Instead of Ephemeral art on a wall, or hollow conceptual statement, RuggedArt
    rugs are a painting for your floor, a strikingly beautiful piece of furniture.

    Rugged Art has hand-picked a selection of the freshest, most innovative artists
    and graphic designers from New York and London to produce a series of limited edition,
    hand-woven rugs.
    The rugs will be exhibited in upcoming solo shows in New York, Paris, Hong Kong
    and Japan.

    the last ones alright, but it just sort of looks like a traditional rug.
    otherwise, all that shit is just too busy for me. unless it was the central design element, a rug like that would over power your room. i like the first one as a canvas though.

    Here's an idea fr8lover, just next time you leave the house take a roll of toilet paper with you and any writers you see get them to do some shit (whoa what a pun!) on it and there you go, your own CUSTOM, ONE-OF-A-KIND toilet paper, omg you'll be rich.

    Those are some ugly carpets! Even if they were given to me I'd prefer not to decorate my home with them.

    Whats with that TOY CULTURE shit anyway, is that some sort of joke?

    And whats with the average graphic artist? Trends in graphic art and things of that nature, have they no sense of style?
