Today, people from all over the world visit the gallery to experience our truly unique collection. Each rug is hand-picked by our network of experts resulting in a breathtaking array of collectible gems. Our collection was amassed with the intention of providing a diverse array of options in size, colour and price points for our clients. Our inventory ranges from everyday durable pieces at highly competitive prices to unique designs sought by international auction houses fetching in excess of millions of dollars. Our direct relationship with contemporary artists, weavers and workshops provides us with unique advantages when it comes to sourcing unique pieces or commissioning bespoke carpets.
