    I thought you were going to rake a design in the carpet.

    Awesome. I bet the hair clippers hate your guts, but the idea is creative.

    This would be relatively simple to cut in.

    Yeah why not? 200-300 bucks I'll shave in a design...

    Some random stuff.... I'll show them my pictures and they can decide about the style. It'll be unique. No two rugs will be the same.

    I have a very high end building that I do which has thick cut pile wool broadloom. They hired someone to sculpt borders in every suite to mimic an area rug. Very expensive and I think it could be very lucrative.

    There you go, sounds like a plan. To some folks, money's no object. To others,
    you couldn't get a nickel out of em if they swallowed it and was choking on it.

    Carving is a service we offer, but haven't had a request for it for fifteen years. Plush carpet is out of style and it doesn't have much impact on shorter nap.

    Very nice Zee. You must enjoy this fine detail work.
    How long, start to finish, did it take?

    I stole the pictures. I didn't actually carve that rug.

    I will start practicing though.

    I just "inherited" an old Chinese 90line.... It will be a good practice piece.

    Also, I am going to look for rugs like that picture and start making samples. It could be fun to do something like that..
