Customer Testimonial

It's hard to describe the complexity of reproducing a 19th century Arts and Crafts rug, but Inner Asia knew exactly how to realize it. From the first renderings of the historic design, thru several strike-offs for color and content and then to beautiful hand craftsmanship, Inner Asia made the custom process look scientific. And all of that accomplished in a rigorous timeframe. All custom rug experiences should be so seamless!
-- Mark Johnson
