Phool-pattiFrom the top, this rug gives the look of walkways with staircases, and decorating the outlines are flowers. ‘Phool-patti’ which means flowers and leaves, may seem like an odd name for a rug with such an optical illusion, but Lada knew what she was describing. “Flowers and leaves adorn every walkway in nature’s eyes, and such a path always connects you with yourself, elevating you to different levels.”
