All About Rugs

First and foremost,, we consider ourselves to be a "teaching" gallery.  Unlike most folks in our business, we don't just say, "trust us."  We say, "learn from us, and then evaluate our goods yourself!"   To that end, our staff is specifically trained to arm our clients with the information needed to objectively evaluate the myriad carpets available in the world today.  Why?  the most loyal clients are the ones who know what they are buying, and why they are purchasing it from us, and not from our competitors.  But we warn you:  knowledge is a dangerous thing.  Once you learn how to spot the poor-quality imitations that have flooded the rug marketplace, you'll find yourself becoming an ardent fan of the Rug & Relic "fair trade/quality goods" philosophy!  Read what's below, and then email us at info@rugandrelic.com with your questions.  We're happy to answer any inquiry!
