The Carpet Makers, Paperback / softback Book

The Carpet Makers Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Since the time of prehistory, carpet makers have tied intricate knots to form carpets for the court of the Emperor.

These carpets are made from the hairs of their makers' wives and daughters; they are so detailed and fragile that each carpet- maker finishes only one single carpet in his entire lifetime.

This art has descended from father to son since the beginning of time itself.

But, one day, the empire of the God Emperor vanish...and strangers begin to arrive from the stars in search of the hair carpets.

What these strangers discover is beyond all belief, more than anything they could have ever imagined...
