Our Services

Handmade carpets, rugs, and textiles, whether antique or modern, from wherever in the world they originated, are works of art. Each piece is unique, a testimony to time and place, a colorful composition achieved by the interplay of dyes, design, and materials through creative craftsmanship. The care of carpets, rugs and textiles -- whether cleaning, restoring, or conserving them -- requires not just specialized knowledge, but also proper handling and applied skills, in order to insure the preservation of their color, quality, character, and value.
