Another beautiful rug.
I received my rug after about 3 weeks this time because of customs which is always going to be the luck of the draw I guess. The rug looks great and I’m very happy I bought it.

I was very surprised and pleased with the quick, helpful responses to my questions & follow-up on my orders.

I ordered & received 2 beautiful carpets in a timely manner. I love the 2 carpets and would not hesitate in ordering again or recommending this company.

I received my rug and It looks even better in person. Hard to believe it got here in 7 days from Afghanistan, I live in Dallas Texas, That’s outstanding! I was worried about purchasing a rug overseas but Baktash answered all my question by email and even gave me 10% off. I’m looking forward to my next purchase.
