We started  in the year 2000, by importing handmade rugs from the war ravaged country Afghanistan, amazing and wonderful country of our origin, it amazes people to this day as to how this art form of rug making survived all these years of conflict, it did and it is still going very well, as there are many tribes who have been making rugs for centuries.

Our handmade rug collection from Afghanistan, Turkey, Kashmir, Nepal, Persia, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and India is excellent and should suit all tastes, home decorators and collectors. 

Every rug is individually selected ranging from rare tribal, nomadic village rugs to modern exquisite pieces, which are works of art.

All our handmade rugs come with certified valuation certificate, and we value and appraise all types of handmade rugs, including insurance quotes for all insurance companies.

It is our passion to keep on searching, visiting different countries and finding handmade products which are unique and beautiful and most importantly going to the source to make sure their is fair trade in all aspects of the process of making every product.
