Rather have a couple of room size Persian carpets. Much finer workmanship and just as durable.

Personally i would never buy this and most people wont. Its a niche market and only people who truly understand it, will want this. It will either be people who are very passionate about rugs or rich mtfs who will buy this not us common folk.

My father used to be an oriental rug dealer some 40 years ago. The best carpets were always persian and the creme de la creme were made of silk. This looks like a very basic wool carpet that can be manufactured anywhere they are handmade (i.e. Turkey, Afghanistan, and Even India) with the same vegetable dyes (not synthetic) and brilliant colours. Ain't worth no $40k, in fact I wouldn't pay more than $3.5k for the depicted sizes in the video which are approx 10x8. And thats at full retail.

I will never understand how people will spend thousands on rugs/carpets unless they're stupidly rich

Only THREE pigments for all the colors!!! This is appalling for a 40,000$ carpet, unless you want muted and dull colors on purpose. If you want real color variation you to use pure pigments and have more pigments available.

So many of these comments are beyond ignorant. $40,000 for a year's work (for multiple people) is CHEAP. Honestly. If you break down $40,000 by the amount of hours put into this plus material costs, you're getting the deal of a lifetime. This is a work of art that will get more valuable over time while all the other things you spend your money on turn into junk. If all of a sudden you lost your job or made a bad financial investment or had a huge bill to pay, you're sitting on tens of thousands of dollars (depending on how long you have this rug, maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars). If you pass it down to your kids, they'll always be financially secure because selling that rug might save their asses one day. Some people have zero concept of the value of art and those people will continue to make stupid financial decisions because of it.

people complaining about the price in the comments are so funny. Like you know before watching how expensive they are and you know you won't be able to afford it in your life. Wasting time being bitter saying its overpriced, without realizing what goes into making it, even after watching the video

the chinese carpet is more cheaper. and the indian carpet has the same quality than swedish carpet and is more cheaper.
Matheus D. Rodrigues (30 дней назад)
Stop complaining about the prices, if their asking for 40k is because someone is paying it. If you dont see the value simply don't buy it. There are art pieces being sold for over a Million, 40k is nothing in the art market

After spendinh$40 grand on a Swedish carpet "oh did you buy yours at IKEA too? It looks just like the one I have" "Hello Sweden? Quick question, what do you recommend to get blood & brain matter out of one of your handmade carpets? A friend of mine had an accident while admiring my new carpet."
Georgiana Apintiliesei (2 месяца назад)
I am Romanian, in my country there are people on the country side that make the same thing, even prettier, I would say, with traditional motives from our folclore. It's expensive because of taxes and probably rent. They have to pay their employee with a minimum wage for hour and that's manual work which require a lot of time. To cover the costs, they have to sell some very creative bullshit to the potential clients.

Anosferatus Stylus (2 месяца назад)
assuming two people working day in day out, 5 days a week for a year to complete a carpet/rug, 40k is rather cheap so something is wrong somewhere. How much are the workers paid? 18k yearly each? So out of 40k there's 4k left which is the gross profit?
E R (2 месяца назад)
Not an expert but it should be classified as a rug or the Swedish work for rug, other than that they are extremely beautiful.

What I have a giant handmade Egyptian carpet made in a small Egyptian workshop it is far nicer than this and costed me no more than £500 8 years ago this is a bloody rip off. I understand craft by hand is quality but charging 40 grand for a rug is ridiculous when in reality it would have taken no more than a week to make.

This reminds me of when I was 7 and told my 4 year old sister at 2 am to pour ink in the fan. Full story: It was 2am and my sister had migrated into my room and did not want to go to sleep. I don't know why I didn't get my grandparents but they locked their door at night cause they were trying to get my sister to sleep in her own bed. She had gotten bored and kept waking me up so at some point I gave her a clipboard a pen and a paper. She let me lie down for 20 seconds before I remember hearing her open drawers looking for I guess more paper. While she was in the drawers she found a bottle of ink you are supposed to use to wet a realtors stamp pad. She started finger painting on the paper and clipboard. I tried to take away the ink but she climbed up to the shelves I could put it on. She even started smearing ink on me. I saw that I had lost all control of the situation. I guess I surrendered to the whole ordeal though because I remember wanting to see what the ink would look like if you put blank ink on the center of a spinning fan. So I suggested to my sister that she pour a little on the fan. She loved that idea and poured almost half the little container in the first go. I got to see the reverse of what I wanted, kinda. Not fully satisfied I took a turn and tilted the fan over first and aimed for the center. We took turns for a couple more minutes before my grandma came out to check on us, probably not at all due to bad luck but more the copious amounts of laughter coming from my sister. As it turns out we ruined a $2000 Persian rug and stained every thing not covered in the entire room with tiny little black dots. It was pretty dense too. I had to do several chores including spend 2 years selling fruit from the trees in our backyard. We had a little stand on the side of the road every once in a while and sold a couple boxes of mandarin oranges, Fuji apples, persimmons, and other homegrown items from the garden. I got off easy though. Some of those speckles were still there 8 years after we moved.
