Whether you choose a carpet as a floor covering or as a unique and decorative wall hanging it is guaranteed to give good service and to be a joy to all who see it.
The range of carpets we offer are of mainly Persian and Chinese designs, with both the warp and the knots consisting of pure silk. Each carpet is hand woven in time honored traditional ways, while the finest natural and synthetic dyes are used to ensure the carpets retain their remarkable designs to best effect for very many years to come. All the carpets we offer are of the very highest quality but the finer and more intricate the design, then the greater the number of lines of knots to the inch. Our carpets vary from 200 to 600 lines.
