Q: What is the benefit in going to our selected oriental carpet warehouse as apposed to a high street shop?
A: Significantly more choice with no parking problems.

The choice is greater than if you were to visit all the carpet shops in the south east of England and all under one roof.

Q: Will the prices be cheeper than high street shops?
A: Yes,we will not have retail overheads so we can keep the prices to a minimum.

Q: Can I trust the the people at the warehouse?
A: Yes. We will take you or meet you there and are able to give you personal advice.

The warehouses we use are very reputable within the trade and have been carefully selected by us.

Q: I am always seeing oriental rug sales in village halls. Are they genuin sales.
A: Well they never have a normal price to start with.
so 70%off sale is meaningless as they do not have a normal price in the first place or it has been so inflated they can afford to take off 70%. Look at the bottom price and not the made up original price

Q: What should I look for in an oriental rug?
A: Basically, there are six areas that you should focus on:
1. Material of the Rug
2. How the Rug is Made
3. Country of Origin
4. Significance of Rug Design
5. Density of the Knots
6. Distinguishing Quality and Price
If you are interested in a more detailed discussion of these points, please conact us.

Q: I would like to obtain a large oriental rug, can you help me?
A: Yes we have access to the largest selection of over sized carpets in the UK. If you give us an idea on the style of carpet and the size we will try and find it. We will get a photograph to you and if it looks like it would be close to what you are looking for we will get the carpet to you.

Q: How should I clean my rug?
A: Because Oriental rugs generally increase in value with age and proper care, we recommend the following for wool rugs:
? Professional washing every two to five years
? Rotate your rug once a year
? Vacuum on a regular basis
? Use a good quality pad
? Have rewoven, if necessary, by a professional
? Clean spots and spills immediately

Q:
A: Visit specialists:
If you do not know much about rugs then it is best to visit a specialist dealer, whose stock matches your taste in style and price.
Do not be afraid to ask questions get advice on durability, value for money, what it will look like in years to come, and whether it will compliment your colour scheme and is suitable for the location.
Department stores:
Departmental stores can be good starting place. However, you will soon discover that specialist dealers have a wider range of quality stock. Staff in specialist shops are likely to have a far greater depth of knowledge that those in Department stores and rugs available in specialist shops are likely to be of better quality.
