Magic carpets

"Angel Rios designs heavenly rugs. Heavenly, because these bespoke, pricey floor coverings are woven out of wool and silk and tufted by hand in the high climes of Tibet and Nepal — literally as close as you can get to heaven on Earth."

Angel Rios isn’t afraid to name-drop. In fact, it’s the foundation his textile manufacturing company, AER Textiles, is built on. Known for turning museum-quality art into luxurious carpets and rugs, the Houston-based firm brings the artists to the forefront, celebrating not only their work but also their stories.
