Graffiti rugs. Yeah that's what i said...
What an original concept. I've seen toasters, sneakers, doors, lighters, but floor rugs are definitely a first. A bit barmy, but obviously there must be a market for them, though some seem to be quite pricey, ranging from £425 to £1835. Naturally Delta's work commands the highest price, but I couldn't say it's his best work. Some of the other artists designs are butt ugly & I'm not exactly enamoured with Stash's efforts. I think I'd rather go to K-Mart & pick up a 'Welcome Home' mat for $20. Stet's dynamic Toy Culture price is the most interesting, but it's way out of my budget. All are 100% woollen. Fantastic idea, just think some of the designs are limp, but then the moneyed up people who would buy them probably don't care about that aspect.
