Collectible Rugs

I consider myself a RUGOHOLIC !!!  It is a term i have created and you might not find it in dictionary anytime soon, but it surely defines how my brain reacts as soon as i see a great rug or an interesting textile. I get a rush and a childish smile , that only an addict can get upon injecting his favorite drug.

Woven arts are an integral part of humanity and have been with us from the early ages of transition. The oldest found textile goes back 36000 years in time. These hand made rugs, textiles and fabrics are intertwined in our genes and by simply looking at them , one can immerse and find symbols of our ancient ancestors and signs, that connect all of us to one origin and can bound us beyond geographic and cultural heritage to unite us.

I encourage you to study antique collectible rugs and textiles and perhaps take a liking in this art form and acquire few items and I guarantee you in return you will have a richer life and warmer home to go to.  Come in and it will be my pleasure to show you some treasures from my private collection.

Yours truly, Rugoholic:         Michael Kourosh
