Dogs have always been a symbol of loyal, brave companionship throughout history. Celtic legend speaks of the pilgrim dog that appeared to lonesome travelers. These companions walked tirelessly with the traveler through any terrain to guide them to the end of their journey. They lend their faithful and protective nature as a constant source of strength and direction of a weary traveler. This design reminds us to value the companionship we find on our travels.
We have designed this rug to suit any modern living space. It can be an interesting conversation topic in a living room, hallway or a bedroom. It has been handmade using hand-tufted wool and dyed using high-quality acrylic. This dog inspired piece makes not only a beautiful area rug but also an elegant wall hanging. Please note, we do not supply a wallhanging kit with this rug.
