This verse from 800 years ago by the Welsh historian Giraldus Cambrensis perfectly describes these celtic area rugs:
“Examine with care,
you will make out intricacies.
so delicate and subtle
so exact and compact.
so full of knots and of links.
with colours so fresh and vivid.
that you might say, all this
was the work of an angel
and not of a man”
Giraldus Cambrensis (13th century)
