Aubusson. The name evokes the vision of beautiful rugs for those who are familiar with interior design.
Did you know that Aubusson is a town in France? It is 180 miles (300km) from Paris.
The production of the Aubusson began in 1663 & was originally just for the royal house of France.
Their use & availability later spread to the upper middle class.
