Land Carpet is a modern area rug, inspired by nature and farmed landscapes. It shows the world from straight above as seen when looking out the window of an airplane. Based on real satellite imagery, the different heights and textures of the carpet make it appear like a real landscape, each one detailed for the country it represents. Hand-tufted from New Zealand wool, the only catch is that they're made in China.
