    Letter to the editor
    A SALUTE TO THE WEAVER OF
    HIGH KNOT COUNT RUG

    I enjoyed reading your article on the finely knotted rug from India, with possibly the highest knot-count ever at 5,000 knots per square inch.  This achievement is a tribute to the artistry and creativity that is the backbone of the rug industry.
