The Love Affair!
 

The vast majority of carpets are purchased for decorative purposes and in the process the carpets will add a new visual dimension your floors. Carpets have a tendency to ‘’grown on you’’ – they become part of your identity. It is therefore not unusual that the first carpet purchase soon leads to the second. Actually some buyers take their interests to a new level and what started as a ‘’harmless’’ hobby develops into a passion of love, - it is said that some carpets speak to you.

This should not be surprising given the history and mystique that surround what must be one of the oldest crafts in the world. The oldest known carpet in existence, the Pazyrky carpet, found amid an ice grave in the mountains of Siberia, is probably 2,300  years old.  .
