A Message of Hope from Dover Rug & Home

Every rug has a story to tell. But what kind of rug would you weave to tell the story of this year? 2012. All of our interlocking moments of sadness and of joy. Threads of eternal hope. Dreams of peace. A great national conversation about the future. The power of nature. The power of love to heal and to help. All the great ups and downs of our world. A story that, perhaps, can only be told in the symbols and traditions of the weaver. Spun naturally…as it is given. As any great story…an artist’s attempt to bring significance to our harried lives.

Rumi, considered the greatest of all the great Sufi poets and mystics, had this to say – “Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field. Let’s meet there.”

From all of us at Dover Rug & home…our sincere wishes for a happy and loving holiday.
