range of rugs that is sure to captivate art lovers, collectors and critics worldwide.”
“It was always Minnie’s wish to preserve the unique art culture within the Urultja community and to ensure the development of future artists’ from generation to generation,” says the project custodian, Minnie Pwerle’s Grandson Torres,
