Introduction to Custom Rugs
Custom rugs give you unlimited freedom of choice when it comes to their overall appearance. If you seek a floor covering that will seamlessly complement your décor, a custom rug is something to consider. Custom rugs are created specifically to satisfy all customers’ expectations. In order to live up to the challenge, custom area rugs have to be tailored individually by a trusted manufacturer.
Here the reputability of the purveyor is a key factor. Why? Any average dealer can come across a magnificent ready-made carpet and re-sell it with profit. However, only very few possess the arcana of rug-weaving that allow to create outstanding custom made rugs.
Advanced techniques, qualitative materials, natural dyes, artistic sensitivity – all these factors contribute to the great custom rugs. At Doris Leslie Blau we pride ourselves in making custom rugs on point. With profound respect for tradition, awareness of the present and eyes turned towards the future, we are able to create the most beautiful and qualitative custom rugs for sale.
