We created this design in the spirit of the chattering Chiprovtsi rugs from the 19-th century. The figures were so grateful to us that the even told us their own drama, you can read it here.
We can imagine many exciting stories about those bygone times:
Two merchants on horses, silently and cold-bloodedly sneak to the shepherd huts to buy secretly rugs on a dark and foggy night in the Balkan forest. It is during the Ottoman rule of Bulgaria, and authorities insist that all Chiprovtsi carpets are sold exclusively to the Ottoman army and strictly guard that people obey these rules. However, Bulgarian women are happy, because selling to such merchants can bring them a few bucks more for their heavy work on the looms. Did these merchants get off with a whole skin out of the Balkan mountain?
