The High End: What Does It Look Like Today?

Baki Ildiz (The Creative Touch): "The high end in a traditional sense is something that has a classic design and investment value. Perhaps it has been updated, but it is always thoughtfully woven in a manner that respects traditional carpet making.

The high end in a modern sense first and foremost has artistic value. Of course it is always handmade with quality materials."
