"Into the Woods" rug is inspired by the traditional foot reflexology stone path which stimulates the acupressure points on the sole of the feet. It is known to be connected to the various vital meridians of the human body and is believed to improve overall well-being mentally and physically.

Unlike the conventional medium, individual handcrafted pebble-like wood solids are used in this rug to enhance the visual sense that highlights the unique wood grain on the crafted pebbles.
